You really should not solve this!

Because Wireshark told you something different.

Wireshark has seen a wrong IP Checksum (0x0000) and not (0x6460). So far so good. But the main cause for this behaviour is the feature Checksum offload and this fact is Wireshark telling you.

With this feature enabled network interface makes the checksum calculations and not the CPU. So if the checksum calculation is donne in the interface, Wireshark has no chance to see the Checksums.

My recommendation for your analysis is to disable the coloring rule with (fcs_bad).

And this has nothing to do with your slow connections. The root cause of your slow connection problem is a different. But this root cause I really canĀ“t tell you with nothing more than this screenshots.

If you want further assistance you should upload a trace on cloudshark.
