I have other Kinivo products and the experiences have all went well in the past. This time around though the product did not live up to its expectations. Installing was easy; you will need to have a CD-ROM on your laptop to install the device. However, once it was installed it did not improve my signal and range. Instead, for some odd reason it blocks the signal altogether. At first I was thinking I had some sort of virus or there was something going on with my Internet. Therefore, I restarted my laptop and my router about three times with the same results. Finally, I decided to just uninstall the device and then my internet connection was back to normal.
I am not sure what the problem was, because as I said Kinivo has never let me down before. The reviews on Amazon show that there are some who had a good experience, so I am not sure if I received a defected device or what. However, based on my experience this is not a product that I can recommend to others. I love the concept yet it just did not work for me.
