The settings you refer to were published by VMWare to resolve network latency on a VMWare server. This was some years ago. We found, in practise that the same settings could be applied to a physical server generally with positive results. As I said this was some years ago now, but it web client latency is apparent and there is no apparent reason, then the settings can be applied to the server to see if they have a positive result.
The KBA article is here:
The settings are not OS version specific. Note down what you change so they can be reversed if problems are introduced.
