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. You can find our adapters 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 connect to a router, such as the WRT32X, and it does not recognize your adapter as a Killer Enabled Device, then you may need to update your Killer Control Center. 

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.

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.

      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.
