E3100 Linux Driver

Hi there, I have a Killer E3100 in my laptop, which needs a Linux driver. The E3100 is advertised as supporting Linux, but the Downloads site only has a Windows driver pack. Happy to build/make if necessary, but do I need to reverse engineer the Windows drivers? Is there perhaps some source available?

Hello PeteMayes,  

  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   



Based on the information from ark.intel.com, your Intel® Killer™ Ethernet E3100 2.5 Gbps is compatible with Windows 10 and Linux, as you mentioned. However, our drivers and support are oriented to Windows.



This is because Linux provides its own drivers and firmware for any device that is compatible with their operating system, I recommend you to check with the Linux Support team or forums to get the appropriate drivers, firmware, and instructions to install them.



Also, you may find some important information in the following link:
