BRING YOUR POWER SUPPLY, ETHERNET CABLE, and ETHERNET DONGLE*!!!

* If your laptop does not have an Ethernet port, you will need a dongle. The install for this software is large and may not be able to be done over wireless (wifi). A Windows dongle will attach to your USB port, an Apple dongle will attach to your Thunderbolt port. (Below is an example of what the dongle may look like.  Apple dongles are white.)
