[Speed] NIC Optimal settings? Speed & Connectivity ??

Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0) is the exact name of the NIC adapter built-into my motherboard.

I'm running Vista and have 6meg service from cable Comcast.

I've looked for hours and cannot locate a chart or listing of the settings for the NIC that are Optimal Settings.

Here's some examples of the wild and NON descriptive settings...I've never even heard of half of these before.

at the Advanced tab for the NIC:
Auto Disable Gigabit (PowerSaving) -Disabled
Auto Disable PCIe (PowerSaving) -Disabled
Auto Disable PHY (PowerSaving) -Disabled
Flow Control -Enabled
Interrupt Moderation -Enabled
IPv4 Chechsum Offiload -Rx & Tx Enabled
Jumbo Frame -Disabled
Large Send Offload (IPv4) -Enabled
Priority & VLAN -Priorty & VLAN Enabled
Receive Buffers -512
Shutdown Wake-On-Lan -Enabled
Speed & Duplex -100 Mbps Full Duplex
TCP Checksum Offload (IPv4) -Rx & Tx Enabled
Transmit Buffers -128
UDP Checksum Offload (IPv4) -Rx & Tx Enabled
Wake-On-Lan Capabilities -Pattern & Magic Pack
WOL & Shutdown Link Speed -100 Mbps First

I'm talking about where you are in control panel and go into network settings and you 'manage network' and then click the 'properties' button...

if you don't know then maybe point me in the direction where a chart/list of optimal settings exists for this NIC?

Perhaps a "living wage" would be better.

I eventually reply to all E-mails unless it's spam...

About the only thing I do with my NICs/network settings are adjust the RWIN value (which Vista does automatically) and max out the receive/transmit buffers, which help mainly with high-speed transfers over LAN, not so much with the internet.

Everything listed looks good .
