tcp/udp offload engine

In my Router (ASUS RT-n56u) I have an option for offload engine. I can offload TCP/UDP for lan/wifi.

Is it recommended to enable it to play xbox live? Are there known Issues if I use it for gaming?

Hi

Are you talking about the Hardware NAT? If so that can only be a good thing, yes I would turn that on, you might not notice any difference of course but anything run in dedicated hardware as opposed to software should run better. But for Xbox live you might not be able to measure any difference

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.

Well, you can turn it on, but it will have no effect on your Live gaming experience. TCP/UDP offloading is mainly used in "faster than" Gigabit networks in a LAN environment. Usually used when storage devices are connected via NFS or iSCSI.

Since normal private use internet connections ar far away from Gigabit speeds, it won't make any difference if you use it or not.

Only if you connect a network storage to your router and want to move large files across your LAN network you will experience faster transfer times.
