Doubleshot Pro Setup and Use

Doubleshot Pro is a feature unique to the Killer Networking products. To take advantage of Killer Doubleshot pro, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Two or more Killer Ethernet or Killer Wireless products installed on your system.
  • Doubleshot Pro option enabled.
  • Both Killer adapters must have a valid/working internet connection.
  • If one connection is wireless, the signal strength must remain greater than 60%. Doubleshot Pro is not recommended for weak wireless signals. Anything below 80% signal strength and you will see some speed and reliability degradation.

To enable the Doubleshot Pro feature, go to the Killer Network Manager. Click the checkbox next to “Enable Doubleshot Pro,” then click “Apply Settings.”

Priority 1-5 traffic will be routed through your Ethernet adapter. Priority 6 traffic will be routed through your wireless adapter. If you have two Killer Ethernet adapters or two Killer Wireless adapters, the connections will be chosen arbitrarily.

You can view and make changes to the adapter/priority from the Killer Network Manager Applications page.

An open connection (such as a game session) cannot be re-routed on the fly. Thus, if a program’s network traffic is already going over the primary adapter, and you change the priority to another priority, the application must be restarted for it to start going over the correct adapter.
