Keep in mind that these are raw drivers, they’re work perfectly, but include none of the fancy useless “Killer” software features. Badly written drivers can stall an otherwise smoothly operating set of real-time tasks, which are handled by Deferred Procedure Calls DPC at the kernel level. Even on a LAN, most router ports are limited to the speed of gigabit Ethernet as are the local servers’ Ethernet cards themselves. If you’re buying a premium motherboard expressly for the “gaming” networking features, you’d be better off spending that money elsewhere.

Killre example, ISP speeds are just a fraction of home network bandwidth or a server attached to a network with a single gigabit NIC gigabit fiber is as fast as it gets for most, and your typical cable or DSL connection is far slower at megabits or less. Even the mightiest 8-core Intel desktop systems have to deal with an inherent limitation of the Windows task management structure. Intel Ethernet controller on the left, Doubleshot on the right.
They cause more problems than they solve. First, because removing the killer Ethernet software is part of the goal here you should go to control netwkrks and uninstall the existing bigfoot killer Ethernet package from “Programs killef Features”.
Gaming results in the real world shadowed the benchmarks closely. Many bugs have been fixed. The truth is less clear cut.
But balancing between asymmetric networking interfaces is notoriously difficult, often causing more problems than it solves, and testing the Killer network manager revealed this remains the case. You can add my voice to the chorus that recommends using it from first install. Besides questionable test results, the software has a long history of annoying users, and while newer packages have filed off some of the sharp edges, I still experienced settings that would not retain changes after reboot and network rules that applied arbitrarily.
It’s worse than pointless when it causes system instability and crashes. They are much more reliable than they were 3 years ago Most people will be able to tell jiller that the “Killer Ethernet” is fairy pointless, I didn’t buy the laptop for it at any rate. Long-time netwoeks might remember this technology from different manufacturers over the years, but the concept remains the same.

As such you can download newer, unmodified network from Atheros directly, just google for: Ethernet vs DoubleShot internet results. We recommend By Zergnet. Everything seems to install and work smoothly, but test results were less optimistic. Although the specs still favor Intel in terms of driver polish, DPC latency and extended features, those solutions are also more expensive.
Best part, they are cheaper than their plain-Jane Intel counterparts.

Home Help Search Login Register. This adds bandwidth control and network priority bjgfoot to the mix and allows simultaneous use of all network controllers to assist with routing.
Fortunately, there are alternatives. Badly netwirks drivers can stall an otherwise smoothly operating set of real-time tasks, which are handled by Deferred Procedure Calls DPC at the kernel level.

Qualcomm eventually relented and now offers a barebones version of the Atheros LAN and Wi-Fi driver set without the manager included.
The idea behind gaming oriented NICs network interface controllers seems great: After several crashes related to the bad Bigfoot Killer Ethernet software and driver, I decided to dig a little deeper.
Even on a LAN, most router ports are limited to the speed of gigabit Ethernet as are the local servers’ Ethernet cards themselves. Download the file above and extract it to a temporary location.
I recommend using the drivers with no software, as they tend to just work and not cause problems. Ethernet alone one the right, Doubleshot on the left. D intel is a good company. GO show no dramatic nstworks in server ping times or gaming experience beyond normal network variation. That generally means Intel, which has the resources to sweat the details.
Despite claims and plenty of promise, no. Keep in mind that these are raw drivers, they’re work perfectly, but include none of the fancy useless “Killer” software features.
