NAT Boost (TP-Link) / Acceleration (ASUS)

How Does NAT Boost Work?

NAT Boost is also known as NAT acceleration. In some cases, it is also named as CTF (Cut-Through Forwarding). NAT Boost is a set of specially designed software rules with hardware functions created to accelerate Internet connections.

CTF or pass-through forwarding is when the router starts sending transmission frames immediately after receiving the destination. However, the router relies on the terminal device to tell it whether the data was damaged by resending.
