Summary: The Adapter worked great. This allowed me to connect a Desktop PC to our router that was located in another room without running cables. Also will work on Laptops that the onboard WIFI has sorted out. It can create a wireless internet connection on PC's that do not have WIFI connections.
Install the software find your wireless connection and your done it that easy.
