If you have lynksis for a router you can go to 192.168.1.1 on your address bar and for the password and username they both are admin after that go to MTU and change the size. for XBOX LIVE you need 1365 or greater. If it is already greater than 1365 you might want to switch it to manual and put it directly to 1365. Then save settings and you are done

Not enough mtu to go to xbox live at hotel


An MTU is the largest physical packet size, measure in Bytes that a network is capable of transmitting.. If messages are larger than the MTU they are divided into smaller packets before they can be sent. All networks have different MTU's which the owner of the network set at what they want to set it at. 576 is a very common MTU if you connect through PPP. 1500 is the most common MTU for Ethernet connections. The Xbox Live system requires your network to have a certain Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU). MTU values are important to the performance of online games. If this test fails, you can adjust the MTU setting on your network router or equivalent device to resolve the problem. Xbox live requires the network you use to have a maximum MTU. This is key to online gamesing. If the MTU fails then you have to adjust the router you are using. If you cannot access the router to adjust the MTU the you will not be able to play online games.

Hey i have a thomson TG782T and i am trying to connect an xbox 360 elite to xbox live through an ethernet cable and i am having the mtu error come up. i already have an xbox 360 slim connected which works...


Maximum transmission unit is 1500, but for the Xbox 360 it "must" be set within the range 1364 - 1492
Since there's no MTU settings for the TG782T. your only choice is to replace it with routers like Linksys, Belkin, Netgear.

Connection problems


MTU stands for "Maximum Transmission Connection". Some routers and/or network gateways are incompatible with Xbox LIVE, while others may be compatible but merely need to have a setting changed. If you compare your router to the list of routers at the following web address, you can confirm whether or not your hardware has been confirmed as compatible with Xbox LIVE by Microsoft:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm

Whether or not your hardware is listed as compatible, it would still be a good idea to check your instruction manual for the hardware you are using and see how (if possible) to change the MTU settings. Microsoft suggests that the MTU setting should be 1364. Using untested hardware or hardware not listed as compatible may still work, however, future updates to LIVE may suddenly make your hardware incompatible, as updates to LIVE and the Xbox console are made to work with the specifications of tested and listed compatible routers and gateways.

Mtu


If you have your Xbox connected through a router, most routers, on their control panel (192.168.1.100 for example) give you the option of setting an MTU, or leaving it to default. This option is normally found on the setup page of your routers control panel.

MTU stands for maximum transmission unit, basically a speed thing.

If you can set it, change it to something above 1500 depending on how fast your internet connection is, but I am fairly certain that 1500 is the minimum that you would want to have set for xbox live.

Another way to do it is, if your router has this option, set the MTU to Automatic. That way your router (should) be able to do all of that dynamically as the need arises.

I hope this helps to solve your problem, good luck!
