What is «NAT»?

NAT Acceleration is a set of software rules and hardware features used to speed up fast internet connections through a NAT router, typically used with internet bandwidth over 100 Mbits/s.
It improves throughput and reduces CPU/hardware utilization on the router by bypassing some of the features of the TCP/IP stack.
NAT acceleration (a.k.a. hardware acceleration) is usually a NAT router admin panel setting.
