Good morning, and hoping someone can help, please:
Yesterday afternoon (about 5p EST) I came back to my desktop and discovered pages loading slowing than a snail (e.g. Google). After about the 3rd attempt, Windows Vista popped up with TCP/IP settings not compatible with your router ...
Thing is ... I don't have a router !! All I have is HP desktop, Motorola s/b 6120 and VOIP adapter. Yes, have firewall, a/v up-to-date. I contacted my VOIP provider: NO firmware changes.
This error occurred after about 2 hours of inactivity on my part (e.g. using computer). Have restarted everything (power-cycled modem, VOIP adapter, restarted Vista x64).
What is/was that error and why did it occur? Do I need to change/fix something?
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Are you sure that is the exact error message? I Googled that phrase, and the only result I got was your post.

Vista had something called Windows TCP scaling -- No idea what it did or why. Obviously something to do with TCP settings and your router. I know it would give you that stupid error on occasion. To rid yourself of this, upgrade to Windows 7 instead of using Satan's operating system. or...
start-->run-->type: cmd -->type: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled-->hit enter key
