Asked by: robert61
Latest version of driver can be found here http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/51219/~/11ac-dual-band-wi-fi-dongle-610-windows-software it lists suitability with both Windows 8 and 8.1, there is no reason to believe it will not work on Windows 10 as long as you install the driver software with Windows Driver signature verification turned off. You can find out how to do this here http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/

From my laptop I get no signal from a local wi-fi hotspot (802.11 g) With a (now old) external Netgear WN121T USB adapter I get an intermittent connection. Would this BT 11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi Dongle 610 give me a better connection, please?

Asked by: Bob7
This would be hard to say, You may find you get better signal with the item but it will vary with the signal strength you can receive at the property.
