No Killer Enabled Devices On Linksys WRT32X and WRT32XB

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.

The Killer Control Center cannot work with the router alone. To use the Killer Control Center, you need Killer Networking hardware installed in your computer. There is no software available or necessary if you are only using the WRT32X without a Killer Networking adapter. All settings are in the router’s built-in interface. If you have questions about the router’s interface, reach out to Linksys for support.

Please note that Windows 8.1 or 10 must be installed 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 Killer Control Center, with the latest drivers, here for all Killer Wireless-n/a/ac (1435, 1535, 1525, 1550) and currently supported Ethernet adapters (E2200, E2400, E2500, E3000) with current versions of Windows 10 (1803+):

    And here for all Killer Wireless-N adapters (1102, 1103, 1202), regardless of operating system version. This version is also for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1:

      If you experience any problems installing the latest Killer Control Center, we recommend clean-installing the latest version.

      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.

      Consoles will not appear as Killer Enabled Devices, even on the WRT32XB. The unlike the WRT32X, however, the WRT32XB will identify the XBOX ONE by name. You can then assign it a priority within the router’s UI. 

      If you still experience issues, we recommend that you contact Linksys Support unless you are having other issues with your Killer adapter, in which case you should reach out to us by clicking the button to the left.
