The NETGEAR WPN111 wireless USB adaptor comes with an installation CD. This CD contains the necessary drivers and management software required for the wireless USB adaptor. In the event that you happen to damage or lose your installation CD, a downloadable installation package featuring the same installation contents as the CD is also available from NETGEAR's support website. By using the downloadable package, you will still be able to install and connect your adaptor.
