Has anyone seen an issue were a client was having internet slowness issues (with using a proxy server) and upon investigating a packet sniff revealed bad checksums and the possible cause is "TCP checksum offload"? The bad checksums are only sourced from the client side.

What if you had say a Microsoft ISA server and the internal nic had this enabled, but the external nic had it disabled or vice versa. Could this lead to an issue?
