Setup & Usage:Start off by installing the Air HID app to your Android device. Next you would want to download the PC program and run it.
To download the program, go here. The developer has also left this link in the app's description on the Play Store page. From that website, choose right package depending on your OS, it works with Windows, Linux and Mac.

If you are facing problems:
- Check your router settings
- Try turning off your firewall
