No software needed, the whole process was literally 2 minutes. It took me more time to walk downstairs than to make all the connections. Now my speed is a consistent 20-24 Mpbs, far faster than all other computers that are using wireless. Strongly recommended if you need to expand your wireless connection and your desktop has an ethernet adapter.
I bought this Powerline device and it worked right when I plugged it in! No configuring necessary! I was pleasantly surprised! My home has a lot of concrete walls, so this saved me the trouble of having to drill through it and drop cables. I'm off to buy another two of them!
