Increasing Speed of Internet Using MTU settings in xp


Increasing Speed of Internet Using mtu settings in Windows XP:
Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) refers to the size (in bytes) of the largest packet that a given layer of a communications protocol can pass onwards. MTU parameters usually appear in association with a communications interface. The MTU may be fixed by standards (as is the case with Ethernet) or decided at connect time (as is usually the case with point-to-point serial links). A higher MTU brings higher bandwidth efficiency.

Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) refers to the size (in bytes) of the largest packet that a given layer of a communications protocol can pass onwards. MTU parameters usually appear in association with a communications interface. The MTU may be fixed by standards (as is the case with Ethernet) or decided at connect time (as is usually the case with point-to-point serial links). A higher MTU brings higher bandwidth efficiency.

The default and maximum PPPoE MTU size is 1,480 bytes. With some Internet service providers (ISPs), you may have to reduce the MTU size of a PPPoE connection to a value between 1,400 and 1,480 (for example, to 1,454). Do not set an MTU size smaller than 1,400.
Modify the MTU size requires registry editing in windows xp
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
To modify the PPPoE MTU size, create the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndiswan\Parameters\Protocols\0
Then add the following registry entries.Entry name Data type Value data
ProtocolType REG_DWORD 0x00000800
PPPProtocolType REG_DWORD 0x00000021
ProtocolMTU REG_DWORD the appropriate MTU size (in decimal)

1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndiswan\Parameters
3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key.
4. Type Protocols, and then press ENTER.
5. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key.
6. Type 0, and then press ENTER.
7. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
8. Type ProtocolType, and then press ENTER.
9. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
10. Type 800, and then click OK.

11. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

12. Type PPPProtocolType, and then press ENTER.

13. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
14. Type 21, and then click OK.

15. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

16. Type ProtocolMTU, and then press ENTER.
17. On the Edit menu, click Modify.

18. Type the appropriate MTU size (decimal value), and then click OK.

19. Quit Registry Editor.
Restart the computer for the changes to take effect

How do I adjust my MTU setting on my router?


An appropriate MTU value is important to the proper operation of any network. To change the MTU on a DI series D-Link router, simply follow the steps below:


1. Connect to your router's admin interface. Usually 192.168.0.1. The default username is "admin" (without the quotes) and the default password is blank.

2. Click on the WAN button from the left vertical menu.

3. Find the "MTU" towards the bottom, enter your desired MTU value (usually 1500, or 1492 for PPPoE) in the text field, and click Apply. The router will restart to apply the new settings.

MTU settings


So your first problem is to learn how to login to your router. Please see your documentation. You can usually find the documentation for any router/homegateway at the vendors website.

If you still can't logon you may have to do a "hard reset" of the router/gateway to force it back to the default logon/password.

Now having solved that you need to understand that the largest MTU setting that you can use to increase your internet performance must be equal to or smaller than the smallest MTU setting between you and your internet target. If you make the MTU larger than that it will slow down your connection because it will now have to use 2 frames transmit and recieve what it used to only use one for.

While there are tools that can help you with that, the simplest solution is to find out what your ISP says the MTU should be.

E-mail connection problem. I can't receive e-mails.


The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) settings need to be adjusted in the router.
1. Connect to your router's admin interface. Open a browser page type in 192.168.1.1. The default username is blank, default password is "admin" (without the quotes).

2. Click on the Advanced tab from the menu.

3. Select the Filters tab and find "MTU" towards the bottom. Select "Enable", enter your desired MTU value (usually 1500, or 1492 for DSL) in the text field on the right, and click Apply. The router will restart to apply the new settings.

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!

I have 20mb broadband but only 300kbs download speed


I personally have never known that changing the MTU setting can speed up your connection, as the MTU is the maximum transmition units that is sent to your pc from each web site and if the MTU setting is incorrect then some web sites will not load on your explorer page, the speed at which you download the page will not make any difference.

If you are supposed to get 20MB speed then you must be on cable and not ADSL as ADSL is a max of 8MB, so i would ring up Virgin or whoever and check the speed you should really be getting.

See these details posted on the netgear site, and you'll notice there is no mention of speed:-

Details About MTU
A packet sent to a device larger than its MTU is broken into pieces. Ideally, MTU would be set to the same — large — value on all your computers, routers and switches, as well as on all the parts of the Internet that you access. But you cannot control the MTU on the Internet, and in practice the optimum MTU size on your LAN is related to your hardware, software, wireless interference, etc.
  • Tweaking MTU size may work well in one situation, but cause performance and connection problems in others.
  • When network devices with different MTU settings communicate, packets are fragmented to accommodate the one with the smallest MTU.
  • Windows XP sets MTU automatically, that is, it optimizes computer MTU for you. This Microsoft article explains resolving lack of connection to a broadband ISP using Windows XP: How-To Configure Broadband Connections Using PPPoE.
  • Once a network device fragments a packet, the data stays fragmented until arriving at the destination computer.
Setting MTU size is a process of trial-and-error: start with the maximum value of 1500, then reduce the size until the problem goes away. Using one of these values is likely to solve problems caused by MTU size:
  • 1500. The largest Ethernet packet size; it is also the default value. This is the typical setting for non-PPPoE, non-VPN connections. The default value for NETGEAR routers, adapters and switches.
  • 1492. The size PPPoE prefers.
  • 1472. Maximum size to use for pinging. (Bigger packets are fragmented.)
  • 1468. The size DHCP prefers.
  • 1460. Usable by AOL if you don't have large email attachments, etc.
  • 1430. The size VPN and PPTP prefer.
  • 1400. Maximum size for AOL DSL.
  • 576. Typical value to connect to dial-up ISPs.

MTU


MTU, Partial Loss of Internet Connection, and Performance MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) is the largest packet a network device transmits. The best MTU setting for NETGEAR equipment is often just the default value. MTU is sometimes presented as something that can be easily changed to improve performance, but in practice this may cause problems. Leave MTU unchanged unless one of these situations applies: 1. You have problems connecting to your ISP or other Internet service, and their technical support (or NETGEAR's) recommends changing MTU. For example, these services may require an MTU change: * Yahoo email * MSN * AOL's DSL service 2. You use VPN, and have severe performance problems. 3. You used a program to "optimize" MTU for performance reasons, and now you have connectivity or performance problems. * An easy solution to most problems is to change MTU to 1400. * If you are willing to experiment, gradually reduce MTU as described in "Details of MTU", below. How to Change a Computer's MTU Size Note: If you change MTU on one computer, it is likely you will want to change it on your other computers, switches, and routers, as well. Instructions for changing MTU on other NETGEAR devices is found in the Reference Manuals. The third party Dr. TCP software can be used to change the MTU setting. 1. Download it from this link, choosing the zip file or the exe file at the top of the page. 2. Run the utility. 3. In the Adapter Settings pull down, select the Ethernet driver and adapter used to connect with the network. 4. In the MTU box, type the MTU size you are trying. 5. Click in any other box, without changing the data there. 6. Click Save. 7. Click Exit. 8. Restart the computer. Details About MTU A packet sent to a device larger than its MTU is broken into pieces.
