  • The number of supported USB devices is currently very limited. The product group are currently porting other drivers to this platform. You can find the, albeit short, list of supported USB devices here: http://ms-iot.github.io/content/win10/Peripherals.htm

  • Hi,

    Microsoft Windows 10 IoT is at the moment very limited in case of USB-drivers and NIC-driver.

    I think you have to be patient and connect your device to a wired network.

    Best regards,

  • Any updates to this since RTM? The link above, pointing to supported USB devices does not work. I am in need of USB WiFi support (long distance if possible) for the Pi2 on Windows IoT. Thanks.

    There is the official Rpi2 dongle, which is apparently only sold in the UK. Seems to be it for now.

    Looking a little closer, it looks like the official rpi dongle uses a BCM43143 chipset. It's possible that another adapter with the same chipset (which is not super common) would work if you force the driver at it.  I haven't tried it though.  The Belkin N600 DB (http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-N600-Wireless-Dual-Band-Adapter/dp/B004N625BY/)  seems to use the same chipset.  Might be worth a shot.
