Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router

Open Question

Belkin Wireless G Router F5D7230-4 MTU cannot be set

Setting the NIC card to 1500 will NOT change anything at all if your router is set differently. I have the same router and there is no way I can change the mtu that I can find. Speedguide says my mtu is 1492, but I do not have a dsl line, I have cox cable. My connection is manually set for 1500, but the router appears to be overriding that, even though it's set for dynamic, not PPPoE. I'm running Vista 64 without autotuning.

SOURCE: 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.

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: unalbe to connect ot x box live

Have you verified that on the router end of things?

On your computer, open up your browser and type in "192.168.1.1" on the address bar (where you type websites)

Next it will prompt you for a username and password. By default leave the username blank, and enter "admin" as the password.

When the page loads you will see a tab that says "Setup", click that. You will a setting that says MTU, change that to "Manual" and set the size to 1400, then hit "Save Settings"

After that unplug and re-plug your router (give about 20 seconds in between) and restart your XBOX. You should be good to go. If that does not work try to bypass the router and connect it directly to the modem to see if you have the same issue

You may have to use trial and error to find the best MTU fit:

MTU Default of 1500 to 1492
Tart the setting the MTU @ 1400

MTU setting. Xbox LIVE requires a minimum MTU setting of 1364.
The information your console sends and receives is broken up into "packets" for transmission over your network. MTU is a setting that controls the size of these packets. If it's too small, you won't be able to connect to Xbox LIVE.
Top Solutions Try these solutions in order. If you give each one a shot and you still can't connect, contact Xbox Customer Support. Note that they will ask you try the suggestions on this page first.
Solution 1: Check your router MTU settings 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.

Solution 2: Connect directly to the modem If your router's MTU is set correctly, try bypassing it by connecting your console directly to the modem. This will help determine whether there's a problem with your router or something else on your network.
Note
This may require you to move your console to a location close to your modem. This is a temporary arrangement, meant only to troubleshoot your connection. If your console is connected wirelessly, you'll need an Ethernet cable for this step.
To connect your console directly to your modem (wired connection):

  1. Find the Ethernet cable that runs between your console and the router.
  2. Unplug the cable from the router, leaving it connected to the console.
  3. Find the Ethernet cable that runs between the router and the modem.
  4. Unplug the cable from the modem, and plug the cable from your console in its place.
To connect your console directly to your modem (wireless connection):
  1. Unplug the USB connector for your adapter from the console. The adapter can remain attached to the console.
  2. Plug an Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on the back of the console.
  3. Find the Ethernet cable that runs between your router and the modem.
  4. Unplug the cable from the modem, and plug the cable from your console in its place.
Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again. If it works, there may be an issue with your router. Double-check the MTU setting in solution 1 above. Also confirm that you're using a compatible router, and make sure it has the latest updates from the manufacturer. If the problem persists, you may want to try a different router.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

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.

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.

Belkin Wireless G Router F5D7230-4


This problems is due to the MTU (Maximum Transfer Unit) set in the router. I checked my Belkin and I could not find where to set it. It is usually under the advance tab in most routers.
I found a utility that will change it on the NIC card. Download and run DRTCP021.exe and set the MTU to 1452 if you have DSL or 1500 if you have cable. Set the MTU # in the MaxMTU box next to the NIC card shown.
