NetriX Posted August 24, 2016 Share Posted August 24, 2016 I have gigabit internet and in order to get gigabit speeds I need to ensure that CTF (Cut Through Forwarding) and FA (Flow Acceleration) accelerator are enabled with my Asus router. This I believe is the only reason I cannot achieve gigabit speeds on my Netduma router and tend to max out at about 400 Mbps. When you have CTF or level 1 NAT Acceleration disabled, the router will “store” the entire frame before sending it out to its destination. This holding period may require more router’s CPU use. Level 2: Level 1 (CTF) + FA (Flow Accelerator): Hardware NAT acceleration mechanism design for accelerating wired DHCP and Static IP connections. You will need Flow Accelerator option to fully take advantage of internet provider’s Gigabit service is offered. Port Forwarding Not Compatible NAT Acceleration is reported to not be compatible with port forwarding feature. This means that when you have the NAT Acceleration, you will typically unable to host gaming sessions from your home. So you will not be able to host any game servers such as Minecraft, MMO, or First person shooters since players will not be able to connect to it. ^ Is this true? And does it potentially cause problems with Black ops 3 on PS4. And would it be worth it to disable Nat accelleration and live with the speeds it produces with my Asus router.
