    Bigfoot Networks (Qualcomm Atheros) Killer Xeno Pro

    I have the Killer Xeno Pro. The E2100 might be the other name for this. I have been completely unable to get this card working including using the E2200 fix on this forum as well. Any help, would be greatly appreciated for this new Linux user.

    Cheers,
    Padre

    I have done a lot of digging including downloading and extracting the LAN driver at Killer's site for your network card. Here is a snip from the .inf file with some highlighting:
    [BFOOT]
    ; DisplayName Section DeviceId
    ; ----------- ------- --------
    ;%Xeno831x.DRVDESC%=Xeno831x_Inst, PCI\VEN_1957&DEV_00B4&SUBSYS_11011A56

    %Xeno831x.DRVDESC%=Xeno831x_Inst, PCI\VEN_1957&DEV_C006 ;MPC8308
    The name of the .inf file is XenoXP.inf.

    I have Googled your pci.id and the others listed in the .inf file; 1957:00B4 for example, and found nothing. I am fairly confident this isn't an alx device and isn't an Atheros. I can find no Linux driver for any of these devices to adapt. Frankly, and I hate to say this ever, I have no further suggestions.

    Wow! Thank you SOOO much for your reply and the time that you spent. That's amazing; thank you. I found the thread for the E2200 solution but unfortunately that one does not work for this card. It's very odd.

    Thank you,

    The E2200 in the other thread is a different chipset altogether. The driver discussed there, alx, is simply wrong for your device.

    Re: Bigfoot Networks (Qualcomm Atheros) Killer Xeno Pro

    Ok, I did some more digging, and it appears that the e2100 is based on the intel X79 chipset - http://www.qualcomm.com/media/releas...ame-networking.The X79 is an express chipset, and according to http://lwn.net/Articles/278016/, you therefore want the e1000e drivers - http://sourceforge.net/projects/e100...000e%20stable/.Since these should be pre-installed in your kernel, try a
    Code:
    sudo modprobe e1000e
    and see if it works - check the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep e1000e

    Unfortunately there was no output for the modprobe command. I did get an output with dmesg | grep e1000e.

    I'm currently using my onboard NIC though.

    Re: Bigfoot Networks (Qualcomm Atheros) Killer Xeno Pro

    PadreAdamo, is your ethernet working? it looks like it should be, judging from your dmesg output. I wouldn't really know though, I guess. (modprobe shouldn't have an output, I believe [my linux box is kind of dead right now :/])

    Yeah, I do understand that e1000e wouldn't support by default the Xeno pro, but I would assume that it would be the closest that we can currently get to the correct drivers simply because it does state that the chip is based on Intel's X79 express chipset.

    My onboard is working. I cannot get the Killer Xeno Pro working at all.

    Re: Bigfoot Networks (Qualcomm Atheros) Killer Xeno Pro

    Is there a specific reason that you want your Xeno to be working? I doubt that you would see any difference in internet connectivity from any other NIC.chili555, could there be any adverse effects if he added the card to the driver lists that couldn't be dealt with easily?
