If you are going to say it's a lie and does not work you should do the work or lets see take the five mins and make it.

I give this an A+ does work and I also tried something else and it worked with this on your usb wifi you can use a 2.4 phone without it droping or slowing down your internet. Please everyone this is a great site if you are going to say it does not work try it first them leave your comment.
