    Nice diagrams, but I've stopped trusting Killer kit - had 2 cards RMAd for being terrible, most recently in my XPS laptop, had it switched out for an Intel card that is more stable, more features, cheaper and measurably faster.

    The latest Killer enable Linksys Router is a thing of "fast". It works well on the traffic priority and range was good too.

    This latest offering is a very different thing though. Piggybacking and reboosting the Killer Network wifi signal to most distant rooms in a large house is a pretty clever passive idea.

    What it needs is... 4 or 5 people walking the length of a street, with Killer Wireless xTend seeing how far it can be stretched

    Re: Rivet Networks Killer Wireless xTend tech now available

    Hi Virtuo - sorry you had problems with your Killer inside the XPS. I am with Rivet Networks and we make Killer Networking products. The issue with that was actually due to the networking integration of Windows as they continue to incorporate more and more of the networking stack into the OS. While the bug was on Microsoft's side, it only affected our customers as we utilize more of the networking stack than any other consumer product.

    It is fixed now, but I understand your frustration. We work very hard to keep problems like this from happening. Please also note that as of January, we are moving our new WiFi products to Intel chipsets. Intel is now a strong partner of ours, and we work closely with them to ensure a high quality product for both Intel and Killer Networking chips.
