Can be difficult to install
I purchased this wife adpater because my computer internal wife adapter failed - so i had not internet. I was informed that adapter is good quality - and it should be for the price of $129 from JBHiFi. I plugged it into a usb slot on my computer - but the adapter is not plug and play and so my computer did not see it - I could not see any way to install the device from the control panel of windows 10. I had the CD that came with the pack but my PC does not have a cd and so I had no way of installing the device and no way of downloading the inst...aller from the website. Anyway I called a mate who has a CD and was able to copy the software from his computer onto a USB stick. Also, when I tried the website on my mobile to see if I could download the windows installer there, the website only showed a download genie software for my mobile app not for windows (https://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/wifi-adapters/A7000.aspx). After I had run the start file on my computer, I was asked to plug in the adapter and it worked - phew!!! what a mess around. Next time I will buy anything but NETGEAR - wasted over 2 hours trying to get this thing to work.
