How Do I Use The Killer Prioritization Engine In The WRT32X?


Thank you for your email.

In order to use the Killer Prioritization Engine, you must be using a PC with a Killer network adapter installed, running the latest Killer Control Center. Killer network adapters come preinstalled in many gaming laptops and mainboards, and are not available for sale separately. 

Consoles cannot make use of the Killer Prioritization Engine, or the Killer Control Center, but they can be prioritized in the router's interface. 

For further support on other features of the WRT32X, please contact Linksys support. 

Will the Killer Prioritization Engine in the WRT32X Help Consoles?


Will the Killer Prioritization Engine in the Linksys WRT32X Help Consoles?

No, but it won’t hinder them, either. The Linksys WRT32X is an otherwise fully featured router, which also includes the ability to work with the Killer Control Center’s network prioritization features, and thus requires that any machine using this feature use a Killer Network Adapter. The router also features the ability to prioritize non-Killer devices using three levels – default, low priority, and high priority.

You can learn more about the router on Linksys’s website here -


No Killer Enabled Devices On Linksys WRT32X


Users with Killer Network Adapters and the Linksys WRT32X may see "No Killer Enabled Devices" or "0 Killer Enabled Devices" on the user interface page of their WRT32X. 

The Killer optimization on the WRT32X is compatible with all Killer adapters that work with the Killer Control Center, which includes the:E2500, E2400, E2200, E2201, and all of our Wireless-N and Wireless-AC adapters. 

Please note that Windows 8.1 or 10 is required on the Killer enabled device for the router to label it as such in the router's interface. The router will still prioritize the Windows 7 Killer enabled device, but it will not appear that way in the router interface. 

You must also have a recent version of the Killer Control Center installed. You can find the latest version of the Killer Control Center here - If you run into any problems updating your performance suite, you can refer to our installation troubleshooting KB here -

After you have installed the latest Killer Control Center, if the router still fails to detect the Killer adapters, you may need to unplug the router for ten seconds, then plug it back in. If it still does not recognize the adapters. you may need to restart your computer once more by clicking Start > Power > Restart

If you still experience issues, it is recommended that you contact Linksys Support unless you are having other issues with your Killer adapter, in which case you should reach out to us through the contact form below.
