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.

answer 1
no..this is the lowest grade usb adapter, you need a faster one at least an N600 that will do hi def streaming. and it will only connect your tv to the internet if you have a tv that supports internet connection, and have a wireless connection to connect to, though I assume you already have a router and your modem hooked up.
It hooks up through basic 2.0 usb, not hdmi.

The router isn't designed, per se, to connect directly to your TV in any way. However, if your TV has an Ethernet port or wireless capability, you can use the router to provide an Internet connection to 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.

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.

Yes. I have an older Dell tower that doesn't have a built in modem for wifi. This connects it to our home's wireless network. Now we have internet access on that computer.

This product will allow you to connect to your home's wireless network. You just have to perform the wireless network setup already on your computer and follow the setup option on the netgear device.
