    I originally thought my continuous internet speed was due to Comcast Internet service. It all began when Microsoft updated Windows 64 to Version1083 in April. I have to reset my Killer E2400 Network Adapter on my Gigabit GA-Z170MX Motherboard about every two days to get my 60-70 MBps speed when the speed drops to 3 to 15 MBPS. Killer admits there are problems since this update and provided several changes to make. I have updated their Control Panel, Drivers and changed the power settings to MAX and never cut power to adapter in Windows settings. After I do a reset, it works perfect, but max 48 hours.

    I do have a spare Expansion Slot 1x PCI Express x 16 running at x4 (PCIEX4) I want to install an network card in that slot, however I am not sure what cards are compatible with that slot. I do want a Gigabit (1000 mbps) speed type.

    No, I had not updated Motherboard Driver. I have done so, Reset the adapter. I will see if it holds and get back with the results. Thanks for the information.

    managed, I thought maybe that was a fix, however it lasted for about 3 hours. went from a 63mbps to 14. This has been nagging me for months. I would like to find an adapter to fit that expansion slot while I work on a solution to the Killer adapter.

    That's a shame.

    I think you can fit any PCI-E Network card into that slot.

    Will not need a PCI-E network card. The updated Motherboard DRIVER for the Windows 10 version 1083 did correct my issue. After my last post, I rebooted my PC and Modem again and I have been getting between 60 and 75 mbps for almost a week now. I went back and checked all the updates that Gigibyte Motherboard had sent me since the Windows 1083 update and there was none addressing the slow wifi issue. I get a notification monthly from them. You would think a notice on this would be critical. Thanks again for your support. I am going to mark this one solved.
