Summary: The software must be installed on all devices in order for the device to be found on the network. Computers and laptops are easy. Tablets and phones not so easy. Smart phones require another app to make it work. Even after installing software it does not always "Autoconnect".

Pros: small in size and unobtrusive, easy hookup, works as stated with updated drivers
