Enable Network Card OnBoard Processor

Published in Windows XP Hardware Tweaks by TweakXP Member with 34,428 views

This tweak will enable the processor on your Network Card(if your card has one - 3Com,what about the other i'm not sure you have to find out) designed to offload network processing from the CPU.This is disabled by default.

Open the registry find the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\
and create and DWORD value if does not already exist DisableTaskOffload.Modify it to 0=use the processor or 1(default)=do not use the processor.

I don't know if this will produce any performance boost but you may try it out.

My default value is 255 for not using it, but I assume that they're essentially the same.
