Enabling ECN (Explicit Congestion Notification) in Vista

Enabling ECN (Explicit Congestion Notification) in Vista

Post by John Adam » Fri, 22 Feb 2008 02:30:32


I was made aware of this "secret" advanced networking feature in Vista and
found several Microsoft pages on how to enable it. Does anyone know enough
about this to know if turning it on will help my network performance in any
way? I tested my home router and it supports ECN. The documentation online
indicates that some routers kill ECN marked packets because they don't
recognize bits in that position. But since I know that my home router
supports this feature, is there any reason why I should not enable this
advanced networking feature?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

- John
