    I tried new drivers, performs average with Killer Software at startup so remove it from startup.
    You can set Channel preference to 2.4G or 5G in device manager.

    From my experience with my killer1535 it works best with no latency issue, spike lag and etc. if you only install the killer network driver only. The killer network manager or its software/bloatware will cause you problems. Try installing the driver only and test again. Hope this helps.

    Edit: Also has what they have said. Adjust your channel in your router manually and get the best channel for your area and also 5 ghz works better for me. Less crowded. ^_^

    Latest Killer Control Center is very good IMO.

    I no longer have issues with their cards. New drivers must have fixed it.

    Did you install full suite or just drivers only?

    Have just had a killer 1435 break, 5th wireless card to go out in the last year. Getting disillusioned with wifi working at all.

    Sadly I replaced my aw 13r3 with a 8625 because the 1535 would drop. However my aw17r4 works perfect with the 1535. No problems from factory but the drivers are much newer since march when I had the 13" issue.
