Re: [ALL] workaround for over limit of cap line issues

Having nagle enabled saves on bandwidth (that is the intent) but increases latency for smaller packet exchanges.

If you do a lot of gaming over TCP, disabling nagle is probably a good idea. Most games use UDP that I am aware of. I know WoW is an exception but I quit playing that game years ago (after a few expansions it's mainly just the same crap over and over again, only you still have to dread patches because they might take away something you really liked.)

Virtually all real-time streaming applications use UDP (e.g. VoIP or skype video chat), so no benefit there. Youtube is (I think) TCP, but latency has virtually no impact on it.

Pretty much those rare few games are the only reason to have it turned off.

The TCP sliding window is best left as is, Microsoft has hit that one pretty good.

Also, what do you mean stop using routers? Without routers, there is no internet. Layer 3 (internet protocol) cannot move between networks (also called internetworking) without them.

I am playing the games over both TCP and UDP (disabled nagle premanetly)

and yes, if without routers over the internet then it would not function working.

I mentioned about home router what they uses at the home, using at home might be contributing the meter usage rates goes up because who anyone uses the customer account internet in the household.

If you need multiple computers to share the same network pipe, you'll end up with that issue regardless. Remember that e.g. "internet connection sharing" effectively turns your PC into a router, so you have the same end result.
