New driver for Killer E2500 v1

Hello, Intel support!

When will Intel release a new driver for Killer E2500 v1 with full Windows 11 support?

The latest driver was released by Rivet Networks in yanuary 2020 (v9.0.0.50). Then Intel bought Rivet Networks and brazenly closed driver support for the E2500 v1.

Intel recently updated the driver for Killer E2500v2 to version 1168.002.0909.2021 in Killer Performance Suite 3.1121.1048. This driver adds support for RSC (Receive Segment Coalescing) and NetAdapterCx (Network Adapter WDF Class Extension).

I think it's not that hard to add similar support for Killer E2500v1.

If you (Intel, Rivet Networks) are not able to update the driver yourself, then ask Qualcomm Atheros for help.

Please pass the information to your Intel engineers so that they, together with Rivet Networks and Qualcomm Atheros, think about updating the driver to enable RSC (Receive Segment Coalescing) support.

Hello @Agriktmp


Thank you for waiting for a response


Based on your post, we have noticed that your product is a Legacy product and this product is being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, this also means that Intel does not have plans to update the driver for your product (Killer E2500 v1). 


We recommend you to check this situation with the manufacturer of your unit for driver and firmware since Intel does not develop, store or provide these drivers. 


Please keep in mind that this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel.


Best regards, 

Jean O.

You bought the company that developed the driver for this network controller, which means that you should now release driver updates!

Hello!

The support service replied to me as follows: "Yes, we have forwarded the network driver request to Intel but  Intel won't release the new driver for Killer E2500 v1 for now since it's 'end of support' network adapter for Intel.".

I also believe that "You bought the company that developed the driver for this network controller, which means that you should now release driver updates!".
