Received on time. came with a thumb drive and when I went to plug it in to install, it kept wanting to wipe and format the drive. I thought I was not going to get to use this. But I plugged the Dongle in and it worked without needing any install. The instructions were very precise on what to do but I did not have to do any of it. Just plug and play. Which is great due to my wifi on my lap top is toast. The price is about as cheap as you can get for getting your crappy DELL Lap Top to work like it should.
