If you don't find a way to do this through the router, you could try downloading TCP Optimizer from Speedguide: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

You can adjust MTU settings using this tool (select 'custom settings'). It affects the registry, so you'll want to backup & create a system restore point before setting it up.

SOURCE: 360 mtu test keeps failing

Using the main computer, open your Internet Explorer and on the Address Bar type http://192.168.1.1

It will prompt your for username and password. By default leave it blank on username and type admin on the password

Under SETUP tab, you can see there MTU, set it to Manual and set the size to 1400 then click on SAVE SETTINGS at the bottom.

Now powercycle your devices. Turn off router first and then modem. Wait for 30sec. Turn on modem first, wait for lights to stop blinking then turn onrouter.

That's it..

SOURCE: XBox 360 MTU Failed with Router

ive got ur solution right here guys...
go to start - run - type in "regedit" (without parenthises)
press CTRL+F
paste this in and search
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces

if it searches and wont find it then youll have to go folder to folder manually its not hard.
then inside of the interfaces ,

youll see a bunch of giberish numbers and letters. theres are your routers/modems/etc.
just click on each of them until you see in the right colum theres a MTU value, under the Name tab

(note some people have more then 1 MTU value so youll try to have to mess with stuff to find out which one is ur router)
--------------------------

K!
So we finally found our MTU.

right click it and click the decimal button.

then type what u need it to be ^_^ hope this helps..

OH btw

this was all on a Windows XP idk if it works with all comps.
and once u change the value.

restart ur comp to make the effects take place

SOURCE: How do I adjust the MTU settings for Belkin router

There should be a setting in the connection screen that lets you adjust it. Try under Internet WAN or WAN something like that and click on the option Connection Type then just click next through the screen until you see the MTU option. Make sure you apply changes after changing it. I hope that helps. If so, give me a good rating :)

SOURCE: how do i change the mtu setting on my belkin n

You can adjust MTU from within the Belkin Router administrative console. You really should not be changing it unless your current ISP gives you a specific MTU setting, otherwise you could disrupt internet connectivity.


Default IP address: http://192.168.2.1
Default admin username: Administrator
Default admin password: <blank>
Be sure to set a password for your router!

This is the address where you change MTU

It sometimes drops connection to my ipod touch


Hello, Belkin usually will have an Idle Time (Minute) > setting, which can be found in the WAN setting menu option.
Check your idle time and adjust as needed.

One other problem I had worth mentioning was that I was not able to access certain section of certain websites for eg Yahoo mails 'view email'.
This is sometimes the result of bad MTU settings.
In my case the router defaulted to an MTU value of 1456. I changed that to 1400, which did the trick for me.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Issues with my Belkin F5D8635-4v1 connecting to xbox; it says the MTU settings are wrong on the router but i have checked and changed but still it will not work...any idea's? - I have checked all TCP / UDP...


MTU settings are set independantly of other network protocols.

Google MTU ~ xbox ~ and your specific use to find an ideal value to set your MTU to which may well differ from documentation you may have about your device/requirement.

Mtu settings


Two things needs to be cleared:

1) Which connection did you talking about LAN/WAN?

2) Xbox live may not be up yet, can you verify it?

Most home gateway routers can only change WAM MTU for certain connection type (PPPOE), and cannot set MTU for LAN and other WAN connection.

To change MTU for PPPOE, going to WAN connection setting, and you will see the MTU options box. But do not change it unless your ISP told you to do so.
So make sure Xbox live is online -- I am no Xbox fun so I have no idea how it works, but just guess from your message.

I have two questions 1. How do I secure my n1 Belkin router? 2. My new laptop (Lenovo Think Pad T500) seems to have "issues" with the router. Internet video feeds are choppy and stall. Access to email...


Here is a link on how to secure your router:
http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9230-4&aid=10177&scid=221
To correct the email and video issue, you may need to change the MTU settings:

Adjust your wireless router settings
  • Lower the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) from 1500 to 1492 or less (usually found on your router's main/ basic setup page)
  • Adjust the following advanced wireless settings:
    • Lower the beacon interval from 100 to 50
    • Lower the fragmentation threshold from 2346 to 2306
    • Lower the RTS threshold from 2347 to 2304
This is the address where you change MTU
192.168.2.1/wan_pppoe.html.

You can download the user manual from the previous link.

Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
