DESCRIPTION

The Enable-NetAdapterChecksumOffload cmdlet enables checksum offloads on the network adapter. When specified IPv4, TCPv4, or TCPv6 can be enabled in transmission, receive, or both directions. By default all checksums are enabled in both directions. Physical network adapters have various checksum offloads in which the checksum calculations occur in the network adapter and not in the main processor. This reduces processor utilization and can increase network throughput. This cmdlet enables the various checksum offload settings, including IPv4, TCPv4, TCPv6, UDPv4, and UDPv6. Checksum offloading is also required for other stateless offloads to work including receive side scaling (RSS), receive segment coalescing (RSC), and large send offload (LSO).

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Enable IPv4 checksum offloads on all network adapters

PS C:\> Enable-NetAdapterChecksumOffload -Name "*" -TcpIPv4 -UdpIPv4 -IpIPv4

This command enables all IPv4 checksum offloads on all visible network adapters and restarts the network adapters.

Example 2: Enable all checksum offloads on all network adapters

PS C:\> Enable-NetAdapterChecksumOffload -Name "*"

This command enables all checksum offloads on all visible network adapters and restarts the network adapters.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-IncludeHidden

Indicates that the cmdlet includes both visible and hidden network adapters in the operation. By default only visible network adapters are included. If a wildcard character is used in identifying a network adapter and this parameter has been specified, then the wildcard string is matched against both hidden and visible network adapters.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: ByName, ByInstanceID
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InputObject

Specifies the input to this cmdlet. You can use this parameter, or you can pipe the input to this cmdlet.

Type: CimInstance[]
Parameter Sets: InputObject (cdxml)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InterfaceDescription

Specifies an array of network adapter interface descriptions. For a physical network adapter this is typically the name of the vendor of the network adapter followed by a part number and description, such as Contoso 12345 Gigabit Network Device.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: ByInstanceID
Aliases: ifDesc, InstanceID

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-IpIPv4

Indicates that this cmdlet enables checksum offload for IPv4 traffic.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Name

Specifies an array of network adapter names.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: ByName
Aliases: ifAlias, InterfaceAlias

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-NoRestart

Indicates that the cmdlet does not restart the network adapter after completing the operation. Many advanced properties require restarting the network adapter before the new settings take effect.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-TcpIPv4

Indicates that the cmdlet enables checksum offload for TCP IPv4 traffic.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-TcpIPv6

Indicates that the cmdlet enables checksum offload for TCP IPv6 traffic.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-UdpIPv4

Indicates that the cmdlet enables checksum offload for UDP IPv4 traffic.

Type: SwitchParameter

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-UdpIPv6

Indicates that the cmdlet enables checksum offload for UDP IPv6 traffic.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: wi

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
