Yes. It's very easy to install, with all of the prompts described in the easy-to-understand guide. If you have problems with the installation, it gives hints, not many, but I didn't have problems installing mine. You don't have to be computer savvy to install it.

Question

Will this work with Google Chrome OS?

Trying to get a recently retired member of the families computer to connect wireless to the internet. She used her personal computer at work, which the works IT department installed Google Chrome OS on it. Trying to avoid running a 250'+ Ethernet cable throughout the house. Would like to encourage any alternative ideas, besides buying a new computer or buying Windows OS of course. Thanks.

No this adapter will not work with google chrome os. Also, Google Chrome IS in fact an actual operating sytem. Please disregard the last user comment. It will not work because the proper drivers required are not developed yet. Thanks

Google Chrome is NOT an operating system, it is an internet browser. Operating systems would be Mac Os X, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.

Is this product compatable with windows 8?

answer 1
NO it does not work with Windows 8.
I bought the thing and it destabilizes the system and I looked it up online and there is no fix. Netgear doesn't even acknowledge the issue and if you type into your search engine "IRQL unexpected error" you will see the problem.
The rave reviews are probably Netgear marketers. It is junk and I am taking it back.
Netgear used to be good but not anymore.

Question

Will this work with a wifi hotspot?

If I have a wifi hotspot through my cell phone carrier will this device work? My desktop computer is not a wireless computer so if I buy this will I be able to connect using this device and the wifi hotspot?

Yes it will, however the data transfer rate is so low, it makes the connection from your cell phone very weak. I would go with the NETGEAR N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter. Signal is very strong and I was able to run a Graphics intense online video game through a iPhone hot spot using the above adapter.
Here is the link for the adapter I use:

Yes, if all is configured properly. Most any wireless adapters should be able to access the WiFi hotspot.

You would need something to put your network out wireless. Some internet providers have gateways that function as wireless routers. Some do not.

USB Adapters communicate through WiFi devices such as routers you have in your home or WiFi hotspots you find at many restaurants and other businesses. You can download the items you mention, but the product does not come with the internet service already connected.

There is no monthly cost for this device. When you purchase this adapter, it's meant to be used to extend wireless coverage from an existing wireless connection to a device, such as a laptop, which does not have built in wireless. It does not have any pre-installed Internet connection. We hope that clears things up and thank you for considering NETGEAR!
