In Wireshark I am discovering these checksum errors:


Header checksum: 0x0000 [incorrect, should be 0x47d2 (maybe caused by "IP checksum offload"?)]



What is the snifficance of these errors? Could this mean the NIC is going bad?



I tryied connecting with the wireless NIC and everything looks clean on my iMac.

    I have the same issue. And I also found that I constantly have "DNS look up failed" from chrome and safari, when I try to reach some website.


    When I have this type of error, if I try to use nslookup in terminal or traceroute in terminal. I could find properly route to the website.


    Moreover I found that it seems that the chrome try to do a DNS lookup via, this TCP communication has this type of error message from wireshare trace


    Header checksum: 0x0000 [incorrect, should be 0x7ee9 (may be caused by "IP checksum offload"?)]
