The Vive Wireless adapter is a desktop PCI-E solution - it is unfortunately not compatible with Thunderbolt 3 external enclosures or slots. This is a limitation of mobile and Thunderbolt architecture and is not something that can be worked around on the end-user side. Please do not purchase a wireless adapter unless you have a desktop motherboard with a free full sized PCI-E slot, you will not be able to achieve satisfactory results via a Thunderbolt 3 solution.
