You will also see the properties of your device. Transmit Descriptors are data segments that enable the adapter to track transmit packets in the system memory. Changing this setting can cause a momentary loss of connectivity. Thanks for marking this as the answer. With Offloading disabled, the operating system verifies the IP checksum. This thread is locked. Each received packet requires one Receive Descriptor, and each descriptor uses 2 KB of memory.

Helps increase the efficiency of traffic regulation for connections that both support flow control frames. These frames are sent by an adapter when their receive queues reach a pre-defined limit, to signal the sending station to pause transmission so the adapter does not drop the packets. Sets the rate at which an adapter interrupts the system to handle incoming or outgoing packets. A lower rate causes the system to be more responsive to packet handling, but can decrease performance of other applications and services on the machine.

A higher rate means less responsiveness of packet handling but can help increase machine performance, especially useful for when the adapter is sending and receiving larger packets. Sets the number of Receive Descriptors that are allocated in the host memory and used to store the received packets. This can be increased if performance of received traffic is lacking. Sets the number of Receive Descriptors that enable the adapter to track transmit packets in the system memory.

This can be increased if performance of transmission traffic is lacking. Enables the adapter to compute the IPv4 checksum of packets instead of the host OS, which can help increase adapter performance while also reducing CPU utilization.

Allows the adapter to compute the TCP checksum of outgoing packets rather than the host OS, which can help increase transmission performance while also reducing CPU utilization. Enables the adapter to compute the UDP checksum of outgoing packets instead of the host OS, which can help increase transmission performance while also reducing CPU utilization.

Allows the adapter to perform any necessary TCP segmentation of outgoing packets instead of the host OS, which can help increase transmission performance while also reducing CPU utilization. Enables the adapter to respond to ARP requests, which prevents the computer from having to wake for them when asleep. Enables the adapter to respond to Neighbor Discovery Neighbor Solicitation requests, which prevents the computer from having to wake for them when asleep.

The buffer size of system memory that can be used by the adapter for received packets, which can be increased to help improve the performance of outgoing network traffic, but it consumes system memory.

The buffer size of system memory that can be used by the adapter for sending packets, which can be increased to help improve the performance of outgoing network traffic, but it consumes system memory.

Allows the network adapter to toggle power saving mode on or off when not in use, while still keeping the connection active. Green Ethernet Short Reach Mode: When enabled, any Ethernet connections will be limited to Mbps, which requires less power. You can choose to enable this at all times or, for laptops, just when a battery is being used. Wake on Magic Packet: Enables you to remotely power on the computer from sleep, hibernation, or when fully powered off by using the magic packet of the Wake-On-LAN feature.

Wake on pattern match: Enables you to remotely power on the computer from sleep, hibernation, or when fully powered off by using the pattern of the Wake-On-LAN feature. Specifies the link speed of the adapter when the computer is in sleep or hibernation. Again, these advanced network adapter settings can vary between different models and drivers. Keep in mind that these settings can significantly affect performance and reliability—in a good or bad way. Consider testing performance using some type of network analyzer or even a simple throughput test before and after each setting change.

Microsoft states that you can only rollback within 30 days of upgrade You should stop this process and not accept this update In conclusion, while I realize that significant rollouts are often riddled with issues, I didn't expect Microsoft hardware and software not to work with the Microsoft upgrade Did this solve your problem? Sorry this didn't help. Tell us about your experience with our site.
