Windows 7: TCP/UDP checksum offloading

12 Feb 2010   #1

TCP/UDP checksum offloading


i have a voip application. i tested it on Windows 7.

when i see the RTP packets with Wireshark, i see that every UDP packet originating from the Windows 7 machine has UDP checksum error, and Wireshark suggests that it might be caused of 'UDP checksum offload'.

i received a bad/broken voice quality, i've tested in xp and it runs well.

what i want to ask are.

is TCP/UDP checksum offloading is enabled by default in Windows 7?
is there any other way to enable/disable this feature than setting it in the Registry?

or is this has something to do with the network interface driver? since i read that TCP/UDP checksum offloading let the network interface card to do the TCP/UDP checksum calculation, so that the packets will have a correct TCP/UDP checksum when they're sent on the wire. if that's right, i think that i shouldn't experience a bad/broken voice quality on the other side.

Thank you.

See if updating the driver your your network card fixes the problem.

Checksum Error
I just installed a new battery, which I also checked with a DVM, so I know the battery is not the problem, but my secondary rig will only retain what I set in the BIOS until I turn off the power switch or unplug the computer. This seems to indicate that the battery isn't able to power whatever it...
