    Yes, there are changes with drivers. The Qualcomm WLAN Driver service has been added to support Windows 10 RS3 (Fall Creators Update) and above, as Microsoft is requiring software installs be done via WU/INF instead of co-installer packages – this is just preparation for that. This was previously installed via the Qualcomm Atheros WLAN installers, but was never present with Killer as we did not bring it in.

    As for the other tweaks, I’m not sure why these would have been set. We looked at multiple machines loaded with the latest driver packages, and Roaming aggressiveness is set to 3.Medium, and Preferred Band is 1 – No Preference. Something else must have altered registry or someone/something else changed these settings previously. If changes were made prior, they would've been retained when you updated or uninstalled and reinstalled.

    Ohh that means the driver isn't uninstalled as clean as possible. I think it still leaves some things in registry.
    Any clean uninstall tool from Killer to give Clean install like experience?

    Sorry again for inexact info :blush:
    The Murata SWG connector includes a switch which disconnects the antenna when the probe is inserted.

    These blokes actually have a good price for the SWG probe pigtails, which are generally quite expensive. Though, replacing the connector with a standard antenna connector should be much more cost-effective with resoldering gear at hand.

    No, we do not currently have a tool that does a "clean install" type of experience. The driver is completely uninstalled when you uninstall it from Device Manager. If you merely ran the installer for the new package, the previous driver was not uninstalled at all, and still there, available for roll back. If you did uninstall the previous driver, the settings for the hardware device are retained because Windows has a default driver for the device in its driver store.

    Upon installing the new driver the settings must revert to default, correct? Is it a bug?

    I don't believe so. We consider it normal operation. If it did not work that way, then all of the people who have Wireless-N access points that only work properly when their Wi-Fi adapter is set to Wireless-N max would probably be furious.

    Now that feature is good. Once tweaked it will stay until a Clean OS install. Thank you.
