Can anyone tell me how this actually works? I just plugged mine in because there wasn't a bluetooth USB dongle, and only the insert key is lighting up. Am I missing something?

Unfortunately, the board doesn't operate via USB, and will only work with Bluetooth. The USB port is only meant for charging. The flashing LED under Insert means that it's seeking for devices to connect to.
You'll need to get a Bluetooth dongle if you want to use this yes.

Yeah almost every major keyboard manufacture includes a wireless dongle or bluetooth one with their keyboards. I'm guessing because this is a smaller company they can't afford to do that. Luckily, these bluetooth 4.0 dongles aren't too expensive. I got an Asus one off Amazon; a recommended model off this website.

see those three recommendations I just posted try one of those the first is for a desktop the second 2 are for a laptop. the Broadcom on amazon is stronger for a laptop but the intel one is cheaper.

I wish I saw your post first. It was from an earlier post I believe recommending an Asus USB dongle. I hope it works well, if not I'll be ordering the Gigabyte expansion. Thanks for sharing.
