Recently all MSI Gaming, MPower and XPower class mainboards as well as MSI Gaming notebooks do come with Killer Lan or even Killer WLan. Many reports about issues related to the Killer NICs can be found and result in a lot of frustration for the users.

Actually these problems (bluescreens, lags, bandwith limitations, connection losses, blocking entire net communication even of non Killer devices) aren't caused by the Killer NIC itself but the Killer software suite (meanwhile called Qualcomm Atheros Performance Suite) which controls the networking.



Unfortunately Qualcomm Atheros (as well as the Killer software packages available on MSI sites) does not allow to just install the driver but forces to install the software to install the driver.



To fix all issues while keeping the NIC fully functional one should use pure drivers without the suite which are offered >>here<<



Download this and decompress the archive.

Now we need to get rid of the Suite. To do so we'll use the Killer Cleaner (>>64bit<< / >>32bit<<):

 

This will completely remove the Killer software including the driverwhich is safer than just uninstalling the software via Windows (which will still also remove the driver). As you will lose the ethernet connection you should have the driver downloaded above ready to install.

It doesn't come with an installer but you can just enter Windows device manager after a reboot and choose to update the driver for the unknown ethernet device listed there. Now just point to the driver directory and Windows will do the rest. Afterwards you have a perfectly working ethernet without any software fuss.

If you like the software you can still try updated versions on the >>Qualcomm Atheros site<< too and revert to the pure driver setup whenever the software proves to be unstable or not working with your setup.

i followed this threads instructions and most speed problems seemed to have been corrected (for now)

but i am still getting unusual long load times on the connection between my PC and my router, my 2 other computers are fine though

takes at least 2-3 minutes for the load to complete, can i get a point in the right direction to correct this as it makes my SSD redundant as hell

thanks

It works, thank you.
But this "KillerCleaner" does not uninstall the Killer software. It's just deleting the driver and keeping the software. You should uninstall it from control panel as well.

It doesn't work... I've uninstalled the old driver and the Killer Suit, used the Killer Cleaner and installed the new driver from the "Killer E220x/Win7"-Folder. The installation worked fine but it seems that there is no lan-connection. Before, with the old driver, I had a ping about 17, download speed about 12mb and upload speed 1mb. Now I have a ping about 52, download speed 5mb and a upload speed about 0.60mb. This is the same result as if I'm just connected with wLan.

By the way: I'm going through a dlan-adapter in the internet.

And before I had the problem that the connection has often disrupted for no reason and I had internet speed-drop downs.

Has somebody an idea?

It works fine. I'm just using the pure drivers too and I don't have any problems. Using the pure drivers does not affect download speed or ping. The problem might be realted to your general Internet access. TRy connecting the pc directly to the Internet (not via dlan).

I'm also having problems at boot where the Ethernet cord isn't recognized at all.

*i have to disable the connection and re-enable multiple times just to get the system to recognize it; even then it's a 50/50 chance it will hit a dns error down the line.

I have never downloaded the killer suite on this os(clean boot) and am using "pure" drivers.

Starting to regret my decision to go with this board. Having to ghetto rig a board really tees me off. :nooo:

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hallo,

mit dem Mainboard Z87-GD65 Gaming hat alles geklappt und die Internetverbindung ist nach der Umstellung so wie vorher mit leichter Verbesserung im Download, aber im üblichen Rahmen der Schwankungen - vielen Dank!

Und nun das Ganze noch einmal als TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language):

No, they are not. New Qualcomm Atheros downloads just include a newer software suite version not driver version. Driver is fine and working.

odd, I havent had any issues so far with the software? everything is running really well (MSI Gaming 5) - I have even used it to throttle down the Origin DL speed (It was hogging)

Cant you just exit the software first, just to test if thats the issue?

From what i know, performance of latest KillerNIC is still minimalistically lower than IntelNIC... the Pro is this great software ... that makes dissappear unfriendly online-teamchat-messages like this: "Stop downloading pR0n, you laggin!"

Ever thought of configuring your automatic tweaked apps once and for all manually??? :D
Like... go to the application list, find the enlisted programm that you have problems with, browser, i.e., change its priority back from low to normal :D

Always at least try that first... the killer service feature is a killer feature.

Mine is running pretty nice too.

I agree nice Application-based firewall! App is automatically in list... just click Block. Try that with WIndows-Firewall xD

Also ensure latest drivers...not from MSI badly maintained board-support-download-page... but watch "station-drivers" for more actual drivers for Killer, you always find latest there.

I dont get it... why prefering a more power hungry, slightly less faster Killer of Intel, when you dont use this great feature... whcih Intel dont have...

In case you dont want the Service, you really dont need to uninstall everything and load and install it again without the service... just go into your windows-services and stop the Qualcomm Killer Service... thats it and you are finished.

Hey guys,

I'm only getting 10,0 Mbps on a brand new gaming desktop, whilst my laptop gets 150,0 Mbps. I tried this fix but it still won't work. Speedtests only give me around 3mb download speed. Anyone knows how i can fix this? Really want to play games but can't do that when the patch/updates take a week to download (@40kb/s).

Thanks in advance.

If you're still having BSODs after ditching the software, do a Google search for Guide: Turn your Killer E2200 NIC into Qualcomm Athero AR8161 -- should be the first result from TechPowerUp. The chipset in the Killer lan is actually a Qualcomm Athero AR8161 which has far more stable drivers. This was the only fix that worked for me. Two days now and still no blue screen, where as before I was getting one every few hours.

I can't say the following will work for everyone, but it does for me:  Install Killer as normal so that Ethernet files etc., are installed, then go to Task Manager and under Start Up, stop Killer from starting.  All that happens is that the Killer software doesn't start but it doesn't affect the Ethernet Connection.  My download speeds are over 70Mbs with Uploads at around 10Mbs

Are you sure this'll help? Seems like the easiest fix than, if it's confirmed working.

Also having slow internet speeds and serious doubts about this software, I've got a B85-G43 Gaming Mobo. Are there a lot of differences between NIC's of MSI mobo's?

This was a long time coming, thank you! Their bandwidth control is the major culprit for most of the issues which for some reasons blocks a ton of internet packets and hence makes browsing and communication full of errors. What is worse, you simply can't turn it off permanently, it turns itself back on everytime  you start your computer. I tried contacting Qualcomm so many times, they have yet to get back to me once. Really disappointed. I hope MSI changes their NIC and goes with much more reliable Intel NICs.

Also you might wanna post this on the Gaming Motherboard section as well.

I was getting sporadic DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSoD and following fixed the issue:

First I checked blue screen dump file (C:\Windows\Minidump) with BlueScreenView and it pointed to Ethernet drivers so I found this website.

As link to Killer Cleaner is not available on Qualcomm website anymore I found mirror on some site that is not available anymore too... shout if you need them, I have x64 version on my drive. Can't post external links here...

So for Windows 7:
0.Download cleaner and drivers first!
1.Use Killer Cleaner
2.Uninstall Qualcomm Software Suite (Programs->Uninstall)
3.Reboot
4.Install clean drivers

Clean drivers mentioned in this topic works (https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=174229.0), however original version gave me some error, new January version works like a charm!

Hopefully MSI will fix this soon as Killer software suite is great but random bsod's are unacceptable!!

One more thing. It started giving me BSoD after updating avast antivirus from version 7 to 9, and installing several Windows 7 updates (around 90 last important updates). It may be somehow related.

Having Issues with some internet required programs. Have MSI Z97 Gaming 7, Windows 8.1 64bit.

Would it correct my problems if I uninstall the Qualcomm software and install the driver in the link from January 6th?

Also tried to use the links in the original post, but they're not available anymore...

@ptysper: would your killer cleaner work for Windows 8.1 64bit?

Links to the KillerCleaner tool are dead because the qualcomm download page does not exist any more at the moment (February 2015).

Solution is to use the Internet Archive's version (indexed December 2014):
* not allowed to post external links *
--> https : // web.archive .org /web/20141220022603/ http : // www .qca.qualcomm .com /resources/driverdownloads/ <-- without spaces


Both versions of the cleaner tool are for download there
And also the base AR816X driver (Killer E2200 is a AR816X) you can find there.

Also know, if you want to use the latest Killer driver without the software, you can download the latest Killer Suite, open the zip file, don't click install but go to \drivers\Production\ choose you OS and manually install the driver as explained in the opening post by flobelix

Backup this downloads. I don't know if the internet archive will have them forever or not.

Hey flobelix, I followed all of your instructions, and it seemed a little bit better than before.
I used to have BSOD once per hour. Now it becomes once every 3 hours.

Do you have any ideas? I

I installed recently a MSI Gaming 3 mobo with Killer networking ethernet. IMHO the easiest way to remove the annoying software of ethernet is to disable for running on boot, and disable the service too. With this way you don't have to use another software to remove, with related problems that can suffer remove in it. Although the software it still installed but not running.

(sorry for my english)

This could very well be the cause of a problem I've been having for the last sleepless night lol.

Have only ever installed the killer driver only from msi site but can't get my torrents running at anything other than pathetic speeds.  I've been messing around with firewalls, torrents and clients and also my team viewer was locking up all the networks on bootup for 2 or 3 minutes.  I've been trying all sorts of stuff and this thread would explain my problem.

I rremoved the driver and disabled lan in the bios but still have this problem. It's driving me so crazy I haven't even finished building the pc properly lol.

Any tips apart from trying the cleaner and different drivers?

I see a post somewhere this morning detailing the original chip model/driver that was non killer. I'll drag it out the history layer and post it up.

Hello guys.

Motherboard MSI Z87 G45 Gaming:

I'm getting BSoD caused by tcpip.sys and crash adress: ntoskrnl.exe+72a40.

I have tried the cleaner tool and uninstalled the Killer Performance Suite and installed the driver one of you provided a link to. No luck.

Its been like this for about 1,5 week or so. I'm getting the BSoD just when watching Youtube videos or when PC is left alone with multiple connections out and ingoing in the background. When gaming no problems at all.

I know I'm Kind of late but hopefully this helps people who are still having issues with these motherboards, I seemed to have solved the issue of my connection problems for now so hopefully this helps anyone still having connection issues (Mine would drop connection completely at random or not recognize the Ethernet port after start up) PLEASE read the steps before starting the process and make sure you understand them, even tho they are very simple.

STEP 1: Get a USB with at least 350MB of free space and plug it in.
STEP 2: Go to the killer networking Website, under the support tab, driver downloads, and DOWNLOAD Killer Suite ONTO THE USB.
STEP 3: Re-Boot Your PC
STEP 4: My computer, Select your USB Drive with the newly downloaded Killer Suite on it, right click, RUN AS ADMIN.
STEP 5: A window should appear with three options, Modify, Repair, and Remove. SELECT REMOVE, It will remove everything associated with Killer Ethernet from your PC, It will ask you to RE-BOOT, Select YES.
STEP 6: Your PC is Rebooting, After Startup make sure there is NO Connection to the internet, this means it has successfully removed everything.
STEP 7: Go back to your USB with the Killer Suite and again and RUN AS ADMIN.
STEP 8: It will ask you for language, and then it will install killer suite again. ****PAY ATTENTION*** It will Promt for anther Reboot, SELECT **NO**, Notice your PC Now has an internet connection.
STEP 9: After DECLINING THE REBOOT, Go back again to the USB with the killer network and again RUN AS ADMIN.
STEP 10: Select MODIFY This Time, Another window with selection boxes will appear, UN-select EVERYTHING (no blue box or checkmark)  **EXCEPT FOR THE DRIVERS YOUR MOTHERBOARD REQUIRES (Mine were the E220x)** Make sure the Drivers you require have a completely blue square selection Box!!!!
STEP 11: Click INSTALL, It will remove killer suite and everything else EXCEPT FOR YOUR DRIVERS. It once again will prompt for re-reboot, thus time select YES.
STEP 12: After boot up, insure you have an internet connection, if you do then it should have been successful, mine has been working no problem for the past 2 weeks, if not repeat from STEP 4.

Hopefully this helps anyone still stuck in this boat or who hasn't gotten a new board yet!

This may work sometimes, but the real issue is a conflict with the NDIS 6.30 driver.  Check your windows event viewer, and you will likely see some critical events. In my case they were all Event  ID 41.  My computer was restarting every 10 minutes or so as long as I was not doing anything on it.  It would run for hours if I were typing or gaming.  Eventually I ran WhoCrashed and it pointed me to the NDIS 6.30 driver.  I removed the Killer driver, and installed an intel network card and voila, no more restarts, no more critical errors in event viewer since I did that.  Two weeks now and absolutely no issues.
Killer should acknowledge the issue and MSI should replace all of these boards.

Thank You sir for this invaluable post.. i was struggling with internet speeds from my provider and had like 3 -4 technicians visit to identify the  problem.. until I finally figured something could be wrong with the mobo's lan card.. which shouldn't have been the issue if msi had proper drivers for the lan card on this mobo ( max power z87 ) from the beginning it self...

Thanks again...

Right,

The reason why this fix is not applicable to some because they 'clearly have another problem' or 'cant follow the non official representative of MSI's instructions' is because the information is half baked and theres some insistance that as admins they are absolutely correct. Despite following the various different instructions and bad work arounds here, i have still constantly had the issue of dropouts. Its not another issue, its not windows, its not my hardware, its exactly the same problem that admins here claim to have found a solution for, that they havent fixed. Ive finally completely smashed it out on my machine and have found additional clues to the problem on my MSI GE62 2DQ Apache - The SOLE issue i have with this wonderful machine has been the god awful killer ethernet drivers.Why the f some clown thought it would be a good idea to have a hard wired ethernet port that disconnected will still interfere with a connected wifi network is beyond dumb, and anyone who thinks these types of devices ACTUALLY increase any network traffic flow must be about 12 years old. Even the theory is suspect... but i digest. I dont use a wired ethernet connection at all, i use WiFi exclusively, so to have an ethernet device cause issues with my wifi network p****s me off to no end.

First of all - Remember its actually an ATHEROS AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30) - This is what it will display directly in device manager WHEN YOU HAVE CORRECTLY FIXED THE ISSUE
OTHERWISE IT WILL KEEP ON DISPLAYING AS A KILLER ETHERNET DEVICE AND WILL REMAIN NON FUNCTIONAL.

Heres the poop -
Disabling the ethernet in your device manager doesnt stop the dropouts. It DOES however result in faster and sometimes even instant reconnections. This is sketchy tho.
I have no idea what this killer cleaner stuff does, as it seemed to do literally nothing that using the standard windows 'uninstall program' function does. It doesnt remove keys or drivers, only the killer suite. That is all.

Heres how to fix it, so it actually works.
Go to the atheros website and download the suggested standalone drivers, ive given you the device name above.,
UNINSTALL the killer suite using the programs and features menu NOT killer cleaner. (didnt make any difference at all whether i used this or not. i suggest dont use it because i know my steps work)
UNINSTALL the device in device manager, checking the box for deleting the drivers. I find at this stage, im still connected to the internet, as at this stage your wifi card is working exactly the way it should, as a standalone device not connected by software to some half arsed rebranded network card. DISCONNECT from the internet. DO NOT go into airplane mode or anything. Just disconnect.
HERES THE PART THE ADMINS ARE MISSING
REGEDIT - Do repeated searches for 'killer' and 'e2200' - D.F.E. (Delete Effing Every) single key you find with either of those terms in it. ALL KEYS LISTING KILLER OR E2200 NO EXCEPTIONS. THIS IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT. IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, THEN EVEN IF YOU 'SUCCESSFULLY' INSTALL THE ATHEROS DRIVERS IT WINDOWS WILL A) - STILL LIST YOUR DEVICE AS KILLER ETHERNET AND B) - STILL ATTEMPT TO OVERRIDE YOUR OEM ATHEROS DRIVERS WITH RIVET/KILLER NETWORKS MICROSOFT SUPPLIED DRIVERS. - DO NOT RESTART AT THIS STAGE. Youll also notice when you read some of the notes on the registry keys something called 'Rivet networks' appearing - This also appears to be important but more on that in a moment.

THEN - Scan hardward for changes in device manager. Your device will now come up as a generic unknown ethernet device, THIS IS GOOD
Right click on the device not working - Properties - Update driver - Browse my computer - Let me pick from a list of drivers - Have disk - Locate the files for the drivers you just downloaded, and select the device i listed above **GO THROUGH IT IN THAT ORDER OR IT WILL STILL INSIST ON AUTOMATING THE PROCESS AND WILL RE-INSTALL THE DRIVERS YOU TOLD WINDOWS TO UNINSTALL AND DELETE, AND NOT THE DRIVERS YOU ARE TELLING IT TO INSTALL**

You will then see in your device manager - A Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 entry instead of Killer e2200 and youll very quickly find that you no longer get any dropouts. I did this last night, and have not had a dropout or connection problem since.

A FURTHER OBSERVATION - I then fired up my laptop this morning to keep an eye on whether this has worked and found that my computer had 'Failed' an update..... Windows has again, ATTEMPTED TO OVERRIDE MY DRIVER INSTALLATION by attempting to install what seems to be called some 'Rivet Networks' :censored:  so im guessing this is what micropoo are using to insist their software needs to be installed. Ill now have to find a way to block that from ever happening again so i can maintain some functionality during an update cycle. Ive never trusted an OEM with new drivers.

So, now you have the actual lowdown on why A) this problem was FAR from 'Solved' in these forums and B) what the issue is and how to fix it.

_NOW_ the problems are fixed.

Have a nice day.

Hi all.  Just about to start a Z97 Gaming 5 build and the Killer Lan issue has my attention (big time!)  I've parsed everything in this forum and others as well and most (?all) of the proposed fixes assume that the Killer Suite/drivers have already been loaded (different approaches on ensuring complete removal of the Killer Suite bits and pieces).  My question is whether this problem can be wholesale avoided by loading the 'non-Killer' drivers made available by MSI (and/or Qualcomm) from the get-go and not the Suite??  Anyone have experience with this?  If it is possible, which NIC driver (MSI or Qualcomm) would be preferable?  Thanks for the collective wisdom...

Hate to be the noob here.  Tnx to you Svet, I found the latest Win7_64 drivers.  3 files but no installer.  How do I load these if I haven't loaded some other NIC driver first.  Device manager?  Will it show a default NIC?  Tnx much for the help!

you have to go to device manager to locate your device with yellow mark or the network killer card,
then to right click and to point to the folder where those files are located and to select the .inf file from there.

Is this still an issue or has MSI updated the killer suite so that all is well and safe to install?

Hi

It's rather random issue, and most commonly: caused by the whole suite (whereas installing just driver works perfectly fine).

Hi I am having the same problem with the killer network built in Lan.
My motherboard is the MSI Z97A Gaming 6 Motherboard.

I did everything that was suggested with no luck to fix it  :(  it keeps going out on me  :(
I did disable the on board Lan and and uninstalled all software and drivers then I went and got this Linksys USB3GIG USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.

Now that USB Network Adapter is going out on me also,I don't know whats going on please help  :(  before anyone suggests it I am not going
to send it back just cause of the on board Lan,everything else works awesome  :)  its about a month old the motherboard I mean.

Curious could a bad network cable cause this problem? The network cable is about 3 years old or more,its CAT 5e Enhanced 500Mhz,I will be getting
CAT 7 sometime soon.

One more question in a few months I plan to get this Motherboard X99A GODLIKE GAMING Motherboard,does that have the same problems like the other boards with Killer Network?  I hope not for a board that is almost $600.  

Or I might wait and get the X99A GODLIKE GAMING CARBON Motherboard.

Thank you in advance for the help.

Right,

The reason why this fix is not applicable to some because they 'clearly have another problem' or 'cant follow the non official representative of MSI's instructions' is because the information is half baked and theres some insistance that as admins they are absolutely correct. Despite following the various different instructions and bad work arounds here, i have still constantly had the issue of dropouts. Its not another issue, its not windows, its not my hardware, its exactly the same problem that admins here claim to have found a solution for, that they havent fixed. Ive finally completely smashed it out on my machine and have found additional clues to the problem on my MSI GE62 2DQ Apache - The SOLE issue i have with this wonderful machine has been the god awful killer ethernet drivers.Why the f some clown thought it would be a good idea to have a hard wired ethernet port that disconnected will still interfere with a connected wifi network is beyond dumb, and anyone who thinks these types of devices ACTUALLY increase any network traffic flow must be about 12 years old. Even the theory is suspect... but i digest. I dont use a wired ethernet connection at all, i use WiFi exclusively, so to have an ethernet device cause issues with my wifi network p****s me off to no end.

First of all - Remember its actually an ATHEROS AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30) - This is what it will display directly in device manager WHEN YOU HAVE CORRECTLY FIXED THE ISSUE
OTHERWISE IT WILL KEEP ON DISPLAYING AS A KILLER ETHERNET DEVICE AND WILL REMAIN NON FUNCTIONAL.

Heres the poop -
Disabling the ethernet in your device manager doesnt stop the dropouts. It DOES however result in faster and sometimes even instant reconnections. This is sketchy tho.
I have no idea what this killer cleaner stuff does, as it seemed to do literally nothing that using the standard windows 'uninstall program' function does. It doesnt remove keys or drivers, only the killer suite. That is all.

Heres how to fix it, so it actually works.
Go to the atheros website and download the suggested standalone drivers, ive given you the device name above.,
UNINSTALL the killer suite using the programs and features menu NOT killer cleaner. (didnt make any difference at all whether i used this or not. i suggest dont use it because i know my steps work)
UNINSTALL the device in device manager, checking the box for deleting the drivers. I find at this stage, im still connected to the internet, as at this stage your wifi card is working exactly the way it should, as a standalone device not connected by software to some half arsed rebranded network card. DISCONNECT from the internet. DO NOT go into airplane mode or anything. Just disconnect.
HERES THE PART THE ADMINS ARE MISSING
REGEDIT - Do repeated searches for 'killer' and 'e2200' - D.F.E. (Delete Effing Every) single key you find with either of those terms in it. ALL KEYS LISTING KILLER OR E2200 NO EXCEPTIONS. THIS IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT. IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, THEN EVEN IF YOU 'SUCCESSFULLY' INSTALL THE ATHEROS DRIVERS IT WINDOWS WILL A) - STILL LIST YOUR DEVICE AS KILLER ETHERNET AND B) - STILL ATTEMPT TO OVERRIDE YOUR OEM ATHEROS DRIVERS WITH RIVET/KILLER NETWORKS MICROSOFT SUPPLIED DRIVERS. - DO NOT RESTART AT THIS STAGE. Youll also notice when you read some of the notes on the registry keys something called 'Rivet networks' appearing - This also appears to be important but more on that in a moment.

THEN - Scan hardward for changes in device manager. Your device will now come up as a generic unknown ethernet device, THIS IS GOOD
Right click on the device not working - Properties - Update driver - Browse my computer - Let me pick from a list of drivers - Have disk - Locate the files for the drivers you just downloaded, and select the device i listed above **GO THROUGH IT IN THAT ORDER OR IT WILL STILL INSIST ON AUTOMATING THE PROCESS AND WILL RE-INSTALL THE DRIVERS YOU TOLD WINDOWS TO UNINSTALL AND DELETE, AND NOT THE DRIVERS YOU ARE TELLING IT TO INSTALL**

You will then see in your device manager - A Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 entry instead of Killer e2200 and youll very quickly find that you no longer get any dropouts. I did this last night, and have not had a dropout or connection problem since.

A FURTHER OBSERVATION - I then fired up my laptop this morning to keep an eye on whether this has worked and found that my computer had 'Failed' an update..... Windows has again, ATTEMPTED TO OVERRIDE MY DRIVER INSTALLATION by attempting to install what seems to be called some 'Rivet Networks' :censored:  so im guessing this is what micropoo are using to insist their software needs to be installed. Ill now have to find a way to block that from ever happening again so i can maintain some functionality during an update cycle. Ive never trusted an OEM with new drivers.

So, now you have the actual lowdown on why A) this problem was FAR from 'Solved' in these forums and B) what the issue is and how to fix it.

_NOW_ the problems are fixed.

Have a nice day.
Hello! You seem like the one with the most experience with getting screwed over by killer products
My PC has been getting tons of BSODs nowadays and verifier.exe points towards a driver under killer e2200 found on my h87g43 gaming motherboard
Since there are only up to windows 8.1 64bit drivers (i am on windows 10 64bit)
Can i follow your instructions with windows 8.1 64bit drivers instead?
And how do i actually delete the killer thingy in the regedit?

I've been lurking here for the past couple of days trying to find a solution to my own problem. I have found a solution for myself and want to share with this forum.

The system: Intel 5930K, Noctua NH-D15s, nVidia GTX 1080 SLI x2, Corsair Vengeance 2666MHz 32GB RAM, Samsung 950 PRO NVMe SSD, MSI X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon, Windows 10 64bit

The problem: Killer AC Wireless 1535 module was not recognized after install of drivers (not visible in Device Manager, taskbar, or Killer application).  Tried drivers from Killer's website as well as the official MSI Godlike Carbon motherboard downloads page. All drivers allowed me to use the Ethernet ports properly but not the wireless.

The solution: After uninstalling all Killer software via 'Programs and Features', the wireless was finally discovered by Windows for some reason but I did not have access to the Ethernet at that point. To regain Ethernet ports functionality, I tried installing the drivers again but I then lost wireless again. So I uninstalled again to restore proper wireless function. THIS TIME I downloaded the "Standard Drivers (no Killer features)" drivers from KillerNetworking.com (http://www.killernetworking.com/support/driver-downloads/standard-drivers). You must install these manually in Device Manager by right-clicking the hardware with the yellow ! error next to it and selecting correct driver folder from your disk. This allowed me to keep all networking ports functional but I do not have access to Killer's networking application.


Note: My problem was limited to the Killer Wifi module not being recognized in Windows 10 with official drivers. My problem was not BSODs or any instability like some on this forum have experienced. This may or may not fix those problems.

Have the exact same issue (with Killer AC Wireless 1535), after a windows 10 update, the wifi connection was completely gone from Network and sharing center, taskbar and killer manager application) but I found it hidden in control panel so I uninstalled its driver.  
After uninstalling the Killer software via 'Programs and Features' I still have another one with an old version (Strange) which can not be uninstalled. I guess I have to use the killer cleaner to get rid of it first then follow your steps above. Hopefully, it will work. Fingers crossed.

Yep back to windows after 10 years and bios error 1 is the first thing to see after windows 10 intial setup and wifi is gone after a windows update. How Lovely

I have an MSI Z97 Gaming 5 and would like to know what is currently considered the best driver option for the Killer NIC. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit.

Some time has gone by and driver updates have come out so I'm wondering if opinions have changed.

Should I run the whole Killer Suite, just the Killer driver or the Atheros driver?

I'm actually not a heavy gamer, but do some gaming. I talk to my friend a ton on Skype, like hours a day steady. Lots of web browsing and some streaming.
Stability is actually more important to me than raw performance and I want a connection that won't drop randomly while I'm streaming or Skyping.

Thanks in advance for suggestions and feedback!

So definitely don't bother with the Atheros drivers then? Just curious because isn't the Killer driver, even without the suite, still optimized to prioritize gaming traffic?

OK I'll take your advice then, but I have 1 last question just because I'm curious.

I compared the new bare Killer driver to the Atheros driver and it's the same 3 files types. A .cat file, an .inf file and a .sys file. The Killer files are all way smaller than the Atheros files, like super tiny. Any idea why? Are the Atheros drivers really bloated or something?

I just like to learn any time I can and am just asking the question to gain information and knowledge.

Thanks for your help!

which Atheros drivers you mean?

If you look at post #19 in this thread, I followed their information and links.

Not sure if I can link other sites here, but the post and download link for the Atheros drivers which now cannot be obtained directly from Qualcom, can be found by doing the google search suggested in post #19 and will take you to a forum post on techpowerup.

Reviews I've read around the web about those drivers all seem to be very positive and that is why I am so curious about all this information.

Oh no, I don't think they are modded drivers, just older drivers that people claim are very stable.

Anyway I won't worry about trying to use those drivers unless I have issues. Instead I will use the ones you suggested. Thank you for replying to all my questions. :)

Also in the future I will update in this thread to let people know the results I get with the drivers you suggested in case others have concerns and want confidence about them working well.

It doesn't work... I've uninstalled the old driver and the Killer Suit, used the Killer Cleaner and installed the new driver from the "Killer E220x/Win7"-Folder. The installation worked fine but it seems that there is no lan-connection. Before, with the old driver, I had a ping about 17, download speed about 12mb and upload speed 1mb. Now I have a ping about 52, download speed 5mb and a upload speed about 0.60mb. This is the same result as if I'm just connected with wLan.

By the way: I'm going through a dlan-adapter in the internet.

And before I had the problem that the connection has often disrupted for no reason and I had internet speed-drop downs.

Has somebody an idea?

First off, get rid of the powerline adapter.  Seriously, worst networking idea since token ring.  You're better off using 802.11B wireless.  
If you prefer using a wired connection, I know I do, then pick up a cheap Intel NIC on amazon and disable the KillerNIC in the bios.  You'll save yourself a lot of time and a massive headache ;)

Hi guys

Just a useful tip that also might be causing this issue. I thought I also had this issue but it was something different entirely. After trying to re-install all the drivers and use killer cleaner, I discovered that my idiot brother blocked my network port on our router using a parental control application. I removed my PC from the list and then I got my internet connection back. Hope this helps you guys!
