Internally hardware is largely the same. Back in , technology newcomer Bigfoot Networks announced the Killer NIC, an unusual network interface card targeted at the high-end gaming market.

And it was awfully difficult navigating through web pages on Wifi, maybe that chip doesn’t work so well either on Ubuntu. The Killer is going to take this all the way, giving the Dashboard now the Killer Network Manager greater control over the card.

What happened to bigfoot networks / killergaming

The Killer M1 and K1 showed promised, but were undermined by their high costs, and now Bigfoot Network’s Killer is here to put that right. So, about the patch Thank you for your help!! Buried in these threads were directions for taking an alx driver kioler patching it so that it would work with the E I am fairly confident this isn’t an alx device and isn’t an Atheros; it identifies itself as: Paul Vargas 3.


I have looked around online a bit, but have not been able to find any drivers to make a Bigfoot Killer E work under Linux CentOS 6, for what it’s worth. In our review of the original Killer NIC the results were a mixed bag: Patrick87 3 9.

In kipler meeting with us, less of an emphasis was placed on total latency in favor of network jitter which GaNE can conveniently benchmark.

Bigfoot Networks is back once again though, this time with the most cost-conscious card to date, Killer Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Rui F Ribeiro Email Required, but never shown.

networking – Linux driver for Bigfoot Killer E? – Super User

All of this we will of bigfooy be testing to see how truthful it is and what impact it actually has. The driver is sort of old, and I’m thinking it might be a compatibility-mode thing for all Killer cards, but maybe it’s just not the right driver at all.

Frankly, and I hate to say this ever, I have no further suggestions. As you bigroot recall the entire Killer NIC line runs an embedded Linux distribution on the NIC, so in this case a software overhaul means upgrading both the embedded Linux distribution and the end-user Windows software.


[SOLVED] Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E Ethernet working in linux – Page 4

Do I need to select a different kernel at startup, or bigfolt trigger a complete recompilation of the kernel first? But, nothing appeared in lsusb or lspci.

It initially launched a pair of NICs that promised to offload the handling of network traffic away from the CPU, and thus offering a performance boost bjgfoot gamers. Anyway, I’d like to know if there are any Linux distributions that already come with this needed support?

I really feel like I’m over my head here Is this the case, or am Higfoot seeing results from some other E? The first link contains the details of figuring out how to patch the alx driver. Finally got it working, with Intel Ivy Bridge processor and Ubuntu Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

Should it be listed there as well? I would read through those threads before attempting to compile the drivers, also there were no distros mentioned in the threads that natively supported this hardware, so you’ll be on your own for getting support for it, at least in the short term.
