Description

The Enable-NetAdapterLso cmdlet enables the state of the large send offload (LSO) settings, such as LSOv4 and LSOv6, on the network adapter. If neither LSOv4 or LSOv6 is specified, then both LSOv4 and LSOv6 are enabled. LSO is a technology in which the work of segmenting data into network frames is performed by the network adapter instead of by the TCP/IP stack. With LSO, TCP/IP sends very large data packets down to the network adapter driver and the network adapter hardware. The network adapter separates the data into smaller network-sized frames. This increases the speed of high-end send operations and decreases the processor usage of the computer, because the work is performed on the network adapter. To enable just LSOv4 or LSOv6, run the Set-NetAdapterLso cmdlet.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Enable-NetAdapterLso -Name *

This example enables LSO for both IPv4 and IPv6 on all visible network adapters and restarts the network adapters.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\>Enable-NetAdapterLso -Name * -IPv4 -IPv6

This example enables LSO for both IPv4 and IPv6 on all visible network adapters by explicitly specifying the parameters and then restarts the network adapters.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

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

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InterfaceDescription

Specifies the network adapter interface description. 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[]
Aliases:ifDesc
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:True
-Name

Specifies the name of the network adapter.

Type:String[]
Aliases:ifAlias, InterfaceAlias
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:True

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

ps_cimcommon_asjob

Type:SwitchParameter
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-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227967 or Get-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227966 cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IPv4

Specifies that this cmdlet affects IPv4 traffic.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IPv6

Specifies that this cmdlet affects IPv6 traffic.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IncludeHidden

Specifies both visible and hidden network adapters should be included. 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
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NoRestart

Specifies that the network adapter is not restarted as part of running this cmdlet. Note: Many advanced properties require restarting the network adapter before the new settings take effect.

Type:SwitchParameter
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
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
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
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetAdapterLsoSettingData[]

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
