Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
HI babb i have this problem ive written above and apparently its to do with the mtu which needs to be reset; any advice would be great as im paying for 20 mb and only getting 2mb speeds.my provider says its my computer settings re mtu they told me to ring a number costing £1 oo per minute and they would talk me through resetting the mtu.they say this will give me the speeds im paying for any ideas?
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.
