    I had exactly the same wish as you last week and as I couldn't find one on the net this is what I did after installing the whole package.

    I took copies of my installed network drivers from here C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\e22 w8x64.inf_amd64_7b93533b1a84b94b and saved them to a folder in My Documents and then I uninstalled the Killer software suite
    and rebooted.

    Then once I was back in Windows I just pointed Windows Device Manager to the folder I had made earlier and the 4 related driver files to reinstall the network adaptor.

    BTW I'm running Windows 8.1 and was also experiencing a memory leak with this driver and a Windows service service called "Windows Network Data Usage Monitor" so have also applied the following registry key change as per some online forum posts and it has now gone. The registry edit is below.

    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Servi ces\ Ndu" change 'start value to 4'

    I guess the network adaptor driver is in need of updating to run properly with the above Windows service but as I couldn't find a newer driver and this online fix has done the trick for my system I am happy.

    THese are the same chipset and have been reported to work. I use the killer software and driver but I have a new beta version and it works great.

    Follow these steps.

    Driver Downloads | Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.

    Select AR813x AR815x Family Drivers

    Assuming your using Windows

    Select and download WIN_AR81FamilyWinSetup-1.0.0.49_WHQL

    Uninstall your current Killer diver and software. (note you might have to do a manual driver update.)

    Restart

    Install the driver package you just downloaded.

    Viola driver only.

    The Killer E2200 NIC is actually more or less a Qualcomm Athero AR8161 chip.
