I have just sold this item on ebay.

As you can see I bought it in error originally.

However it sold to someone and they have just sent me an email:

"Hi Matthew!
The item I bought from you arrived yesterday. Unfortunately you wrongly described it as an 'Adapter - Access Point’. It is in fact only an 'adapter' (Access points and adapters are different!) and as such I have no need for it.
How can we sort this out before I leave feedback?

I am just wondering if he is correct?

I have a feeling he is right in what he says but as there are a lot of time wasters on ebay sometimes I dont want to go through refund and reposting etc if he has bought it in error as I am ending up paying the bill....

I will appreciate any feedback regarding this.
