checkbox for hw offloading shows up for a fraction of a second when page is 
loaded but then it disappears.
so i take it luci removes it dynamically or something at page load.

so all i have is software flow offloading.

any specific modules or packages i need to install on my erx-sfp?
or do i need newer release of openwrt maybe?
