    Killer has problems with software department other than that their wireless cards is actually good compared to Intel. For me uninstalling the killer drivers and software and just using the drivers windows installed fixed my wifi drop issues.

    Still, a lot of people switch their Killer wifi cards out for Intel one's because of the stability, disconnects etc. And this is with any brand laptop with a killer wireless.

    Restarting the laptop fixed the slow internet for me. It seems to be a software issue.

    Best way to solve this issue is uninstalling the killer wifi drivers and software(Qualcomm Atheros) and then restart the Blade. Let windows find the driver and Install them automatically. I would stay away from Killer Wireless suite until they come up with a update.

    My Alienware 17 R3 has the same issue. It is the Killer Wireless suite that is the main cause.
  6. I just tried uninstalling the drivers from the add/remove programs menu & also the device manager. When I restarted, windows failed to install the drivers automatically and I had to reinstall the "performance suite".

    Could someone offer a definitive, step-by-step solution?

  8. I am also having this issue. Is it possible to replace the Killer Wifi with an Intel? If so, which one fits?

    i would recommend the Intel 7260 / 7265 or 8260, it needs to be the M2 variant and not mini-pcie.

    It seems so far that my issues have been resolved by the standard driver. Been running ok for a few days now.

    If u go into device manager and click properties u can then go into power management and stop the device from shuting the Wi-Fi off will fix most of it found that on the alien wear fourms they have the same problem with the killer Wi-Fi card im probably going to put an intel one in there
  12. Hi,
    I have the exact same problems, very bad connections as soon as I am too far away from my box. I've tried uninstalling the killer programs and installing the standard driver but I didn't manage. Is there any way somebody could give us a step by step way of doing the whole thing? That would be very appreciated as this internet issue is becoming increasingly annoying. Thanks a lot

    Thanks a lot, this seems to have fixed it. However, windows appears to have reinstalled the same driver it had before. So, will I keep having these issues, or, will the new driver fully work now?

    @draziw @Emile Jacquard You need to uninstall the Killer suite from control panel, and then go into the Device Manager and hit properties for the Killer wireless adapter. Then uninstall the driver, and then restart your Blade.
  14. Thanks, that's what I've been doing, but when I restart the Blade and go back to device managment, the killer network 1535 has automatically reinstalled. I've of course uninstalled the killer suite from the control panel. I've also enabled the windows option that should prevent the Blade from automatically reinstalling the drivers, but this doesn't seem to work either. I've no idea how to solve this, so any help would be appreciated, cheers

    @Emile Jacquard The Killer wifi adapter is supposed to be reinstalled, that's you're wireless card, you need that for wifi to work. It's reinstalling the drivers. This should work. However, it appears to have reinstalled the same driver. I'm not sure if it was just the software causing the issue or the driver too, but so far I haven't had any issues.
  16. So how am I supposed to install the drivers? I really don't understand how to do this haha... What am I supposed to do once I've uninstalled the driver and restarted the blade? Because the issue is still there after I do all these things

    @Emile Jacquard You don't have to install the drivers. If you uninstall them and restart the Blade, windows automatically reinstalls them. If the issue is still there afterwards then I'm not really sure what to do next, that's out of my league.
  18. Should I download a specific file before restarting the blade? Thanks for the help anyways man

    @Emile Jacquard Try this - go to control panel and uninstall the Killer suite if you haven't already.

    Then, go to THIS LINK and download the standard drivers. When the zip file finishes downloading, extract it. Then, open your start menu and type in "device manager" and open the device manager. In Device Manager, click the arrow next to network adapters. Right click the Killer Network Adapter and click "update driver software..."

    Click browse my computer for driver software, and hit browse and browse to the location where you extracted the driver download. Make sure "include subfolders" is checked, and then hit next. Windows should find the standard drivers you downloaded and install them automatically.

    This is what I just did, because the drivers that windows had automatically installed hadn't fixed it. Everything appears alright so far with the standard drivers.
  20. Okok I tried this, but after I select the location of the files and hit next, it automatically says "current driver is up to date", so I'm guessing it doesn't update the driver as the network issue persists once I've restarted. Sorry about this hahaha, this is a real pain... And thanks a lot for your help
