Windows 7 & HTTP Requests, what does it do exactly?

Does anyone know why Windows 7 seems to handle HTTP requests differently than other requests?

Is it possible to disable this? For some reason, whatever it's doing doesn't work well with my any of the available realtek NIC driver designed for Windows 7 for my NIC.

Seems like Windows 7 optimizes HTTP requests, but in my situation it makes it worse.

All other connections work fine. If I could disable this until they release a working driver, that'd be great.
