It seems like when I reload Vista (in this case rebuilding for a hard drive failure) I have to dig out this post to disble the auto tuning as I’m behind a funky router that doesn’t quite work as it should.


Tonight I was trying to get to www.sierrawireless.com to get the software for the wireless aircard and the web site wouldn’t resolve… but would ping just fine.

netsh int tcp set glo aut=nor

netsh int tcp set glo aut=dis


to be exact is the command that needs to be done.. and all is well.


(P.S.  and when typing up a blog post late at night… make sure you copy and paste the right string)

  1. Steve Riley says:

    Actually, Susan, the command to disable receive window scaling (autotuning) is

    netsh int tcp set glo aut=dis

    The command you quoted (with “aut=nor”) will return the scaling function to its default behavior.

    SP1 adds a couple other values. More information in the help:

    netsh int tcp set glo /?

    Prob a silly question, but I assume once set that persists even after a reboot ?
