Hi.  Can anyone recommend a USB Wifi adapter that works well with Windows Server 2019?




(can be either USB 2.0 or 3.0)

I do not think anybody will be able to recommend.

No USB Wi-Fi adapter manufacturer will be interested in developing the driver for the Server OS which keeps distance from any unsecure communication method such as wireless LAN.

My Intel Compute Stick which came with Windows10 and its integrated wireless LAN adapter does not receive any Wi-Fi signal any more due to lack of the proper driver for Windows Server 2019 Desktop experience.  This means even Intel does not provide any wireless LAN driver.


If you want to use any wireless LAN device such as a tablet, the most simple way is to use an access point both for wired and wireless LAN.

@minorisuke  Thank you.   I wanted to try using Wifi for my WS19/AO3/JplayFemto SinglePC rather than go through the effort of Optical/Fiber conversions to improve RJ45 connections etc.
