I am not technically savvy by a long shot. I don't know a lot about internet access or what you need to do it. Verizon broke it down for me with this product. I needed access for work and went to Verizon and told them my dilemma. They assured me this product was the answer. They said it was portable and I could take it with me. They also said it would work in my home where there was no other access at all due to the rural area I'm in. I got the 'card' as it's called and I plugged it up and it worked instantly, just like they said. Once you put the password in to your device it's saved so you only do it once. I am very happy to say I have been steadily connected to the internet since I got it. It has not been problematic at all and that's not usually the case for me since I have no computer or technology experience. I love the freedom it gives me in that I don't have to ask for help from the kids or constantly call the provider for help. It feels so good to not have to worry about getting my computer work accomplished. I have never lost my connection nor been unable to sign on. You will love this wireless internet from Verizon especially if you are in an area where most connections don't work. I love it!
