OS: Windows 7 Pro
I'm working on a HP Compaq 8000 Elite Convertible Minitower PC and I added another NIC, I configured NIC Teaming (Switch Fault Tolerance mode) and I'm getting a pop-up box that looks something like this:
One or more adapters in the team do not support true NDIS6.20 Receive Side Scaling. Receive Side Scaling will be disabled for the team. This might have a negative impact on the performance of the team.
I performed the following command: "netsh interface tcp show global" and Receive Side Scaling shows as Enabled. It even shows enabled if I disable it from the advanced tab of each of the NICs before I create the teaming. (by the way, if I disable Receive Side Scaling for each of the NIC before I create the teaming I am no longer getting that pop-up message)
I inserted an additional external NIC and enabled teaming on the 2 external NICs I am not getting that pop-up, that means that the root cause of the problem is the internal NIC while doesn't support NDIS6.20
It would be great to know the following:
- If enabling teaming on the internal + external NIC, will Receive Side Scaling be completely disabled or will it be enabled but work at an inferior version?
- How significant is Receive Side Scaling for the team? What does Receive Side Scaling do exactly and in what situations?
Any additional info would help a lot.
