          Answer

          I'm not certain - but I CAN tell you that despite indication to the contrary on the packaging, the device did NOT work with my system running Windows Vista. I had an extended exchange with tech support, and was told the the device "Sometimes" works with Windows Vista. Thus, I'd counsel taking with a grain of salt the compatibility claims made by the vendor for the device. If you've the time, I'd suggest giving it a try....Best Buy's return policy will enable you to return the device if it does not work for you. That's what I did.

                The AE 1200 is not compatable with the version of windows 10 that you upgraded to. I had the same problem and changed my adapter to the Ac 1200 dual band USB 3 and this one works well.

                Smart TVs have built-in WI-FI so you would not need this adapter. You need to go into your TV settings and find the wifi set up. have it search for your WI-FI router and connect to it.
