This is my first post on this forum so I apologize if its in the wrong section, I assumed its performance related so here I go.
I have just purchased a Netgear DG834G v4 with the latest firmware and was shocked when I ran the Microsoft internet connectivity evaluation tool and it failed the "TCP high performance test" I did have auto-tuning=highlyrestricted and ECN=enabled, RSS side scaling=enabled, chimney offload=enabled and ctcp enabled. I did receive a warning message from vista that there was a problem with TCP settings so I just re-installed the router set-up from the installation CD and now find that all my beloved tweaks mentioned above have been disabled.
What I want to know is which tweak or TCP performance feature should I disable and which can I enable with this router??
I have contacted Netgear support but they are useless and worse than my ISP(Tiscali) support - I dont mind Indian call centres as long as they can understand me and I can understand them but I have found some are pretty good and some are really bad!
I would be so happy if someone can tell me which TCP tweaks I can use with this router?? thanks.
I will attach a screen-shot of the Microsoft connectivity test which tests your router for certain functions and capabilities.
