What Is A "Killer Enabled Device?"

A "Killer Enabled Device" is any computer that is connected to the Internet using a currently supported Killer Networking adapter. These adapters can be found installed in gaming laptops, desktops, and mainboards, manufactured by various well-known and respected names in the computer industry. If you are looking for a Killer Enabled Device, then you are looking for a machine, or motherboard, with one of these network adapters. Currently supported adapters include:

  • All Killer Wireless-N Wi-Fi adapters
  • All Killer Wireless-AC Wi-Fi adapters
  • Killer E2200, E2400, and E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Adapters

If you have such a device, and you are connected to a router, such as the WRT32X, and it is not recognizing your adapter as a Killer Enabled Device, then you may need to update your Killer Control Center. You can find the latest version of hte Killer Control Center here - https://www.killernetworking.com/killersupport/driver-downloads. If you have any issues updating the Killer Control Center, try clean-installing to the latest version following this guide - https://www.killernetworking.com/killersupport/driver-downloads/kb/faq/105-clean-install-the-killer-control-center.

XBOX devices will not show as a Killer Enabled Device on the WRT32X or the WRT32XB. The WRT32XB will identify the XBOX, though, and allow you to set its priority within the router's user interface.
