Tuning certain parameters on your router can help TCP performance in your network. You can use the following options to tune your IP performance:
Compressing TCP packet headers
Setting the TCP connection attempt time
Using TCP path MTU discovery
Using TCP selective acknowledgments
Using TCP time stamps
Using the TCP maximum read size
Setting the TCP window size
Setting the TCP outbound queue size
The next sections describe each of these options in more detail.
