Some of the wireless adapters that you use with CommView for WiFi have functional limitations and/or special software requirements. The purpose of this document is to describe such limitations and requirements in detail.
Please remember that the list of officially supported adapters includes dozens of adapter models, most of which are fully functional and have no limitations; so if you currently are using an adapter with limited functionality and the limitations listed for your adapter are critical to you, you always can purchase a different, fully-functional adapter supported by CommView for WiFi.

The availability of the 6 GHz band depends on the RF environment. On start-up, the adapter's firmware scans for nearby APs to detect your location and may disable the 6GHz band if you're outside of the US. See our blog for more details.
