    from a search on same link:
    You need to run and elevated command prompt. Click Start > All Programs > Accessories, right-click Command Prompt and Run as administrator, Allow it to have administrator privileges, otherwise it won't work.

    Then type/copy & paste the following command:
    netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Local Area Connection" mtu=xxxx store=persistent

    Where xxxx
    = the MTU that you want. Rebooting isn't required. "Local Area
    Connection" is a common name for the interface if you use a NIC for
    connectivity. A wireless NIC may be called "Wireless Network
    Connection". If unsure, the network status icon by the clock will tell
    you.

    If you have a router, ensure that the MTU is set to the MTU chosen here (refer to your router's manual).

How do i change my mtu settinggs


To change the MTU rate on your router follow the steps below:
Open your browser, enter the IP address of your router (192.168.0.1) and click OK.
Enter your username (admin) and password (blank by default).
Click OK to enter the web configuration page for the device.
Click on Setup and then click Manual Configure.
To change the MTU enter the number in the MTU field and click Save Settings.
If changing the MTU does not resolve the problem, continue changing the MTU in increments of ten.

1500 is the default MTU for Dynamic (DHCP) Cable (p. 20 in user manual).
1492 is the default MTU for PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) DSL (p. 22 in user manual).
Other MTU settings are listed in the manual, simply do a search for "MTU".

Note: AOL DSL+ users must use MTU of 1400.

To find the proper MTU Size, you'll have to do a special ping of the destination you're trying to go to. A destination could
be another computer, or a URL (p. 86 in user manual).

To change your MTU settings download a program called DrTCP (google for it) then change the MTU size of your Internet connection, try 1465 and keep dropping it until you get a figure that works...

How can I change my mtu on my wireless router to be able to play xbox?


Xbox LIVE requires a minimum MTU setting of 1364. Usually, you can change your MTU setting from your router configuration web page, which is supplied by your router manufacturer.
Learn how to find and use your router configuration page
Look for the MTU setting on the router configuration page. When you find it, set it to Auto or 1364 (or higher), save your settings, and then try to connect to Xbox LIVE again on your console.

How do i change the mtu setting on my belkin n wireless router


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

Mtu setting


In some cases, MTU is not necessary to adjust. Its always automatic and defaulted to 1500. The router model that you have doesn't have MTU settings. You can download the User's Manual HERE. You must do port forwarding and open the xbox live port so you can play xbox live. If it keeps on telling you about MTU, you must set static IP address on your xbox's settings and power cycle your devices.

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. 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: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/learnmore/ppoe.mspx * 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.
