Key Features of the Driver

  • Supports Qualcomm Atheros AR816x, AR817x, Killer E220x, Killer E2400 and Killer E2500.
  • Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission.
  • No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer.
  • TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit).
  • Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload.
  • Makes use of the chip's TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO) feature with IPv4 and IPv6 in order to reduce CPU load while sending large amounts of data.
  • Fully optimized for Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite (64bit architecture) but should work with Lion (only 64bit) too, provided you build from source with the 10.7 SDK.
  • Wake on LAN support.
  • VLAN support is implemented but untested as I have no need for it.
  • The driver is published under GPLv2.

I'm losing network access after deep sleep. Would anyone know how to fix it? Using latest driver. This has never happened before.
