In defense of Windows: those features are good and work perfectly fine,
as long as all routers and switches on the network actually follow the
specifications of the TCP protocol. Only if they don't, then those
features can't work properly and you get problems like the one you
described.
And since most of the time you can't 'fix' those broken routers and
switches, Windows actually allows you to disable that feature.
