NDIS miniport drivers and MUX intermediate drivers use the NDIS_STATUS_TASK_OFFLOAD_HARDWARE_CAPABILITIES status indication to notify NDIS and overlying drivers that there has been change in the task offload hardware capabilities of the underlying NIC.
If an underlying NIC is added or deleted, the overall set of hardware capabilities that is associated with a miniport driver or MUX intermediate driver can change. For example, if a miniport driver issues the NDIS_STATUS_TASK_OFFLOAD_HARDWARE_CAPABILITIES status indication, specifying that it cannot support Large Send Offload (LSO), the NIC can no longer be configured to support LSO.
For more information about task offload hardware capabilities, see OID_TCP_OFFLOAD_HARDWARE_CAPABILITIES.
