The package includes the product and a mini cd. One laptop I have doesn't have a CD drive and the other doesn't take mini cds so I had to located the software online. The packaging doesn't include a link or information about the company. I searched online but couldn't find any links. Luckily another reviewer had included that information on Amazon and I could download the software.

Does it work? Well, I don't really know yet. I was interested because we have spots in our house that the wifi doesn't work as well. As I try this out, I have wifi access, I haven't dropped connection.
The device is small, the black cover does slide off as other reviewers state. It really wasn't a problem for me since I had read about it happening and given a little extra squeeze, the black cover stayed put and I could remove the device.
I give this product three stars instead of five because of the lack of information on the packaging about the company, the fact that the cover comes off the product, and the installation wasn't that easy to follow due to the fact that a basic computer user will not understand the lingo being used in the PDF instructions.

I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
