I don't recall the aerial having any software. I think the software or driver comes with the repeater unit.
In fact I don't remember installing anything at all. You just select the wifi connection on your laptop and enter the user name and password then open your browser and type in the IP address to open the interface.
Well I use my ZTE MILF connected to the laptop via 'Bluetooth' the milf can be attached to the end my 2.0mtr carbon fibre rod, the milf allows 5 devices to be tethered from it it has worked very well to quite well from France to Croatia ,Sicily, Germany, Austria..etc
