The dsl is red and when it turn green i still can connect to xbox live, but when i try to connect my xbox says i need a higher mtu is that possible to change from a laptop


Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

X-BOX


On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.

2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.

3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.

4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.

5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.

6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.



Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365. Also you will need to open the ports on the router.

For X-box port numbers are - 53, 80-88, 3074 .

How can i get a keycode


Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

I have a 2Wire modem and i need to Change my Mtu settings how will i do this?


A computer's MTU or maximum transmission unit is a measure of the amount of data that can be sent over a specific network protocol at one time. Because the various network protocols on your computer all have to communicate with one another the MTU of your system can have detrimental effects if improperly set. The MTU most often referenced when talking about PCs is the TCPIP MTU. This is the MTU value used for all internet communication on your computer.
  1. tep 1 Launch DrTCP and select the proper network adapter from the "Adapter Settings" pull down list box at the bottom of the program. The adapter you choose should be the one physically connected to your modem or router for internet accessmag-glass_10x10.gif via an ethernet cable. You can find proper hardware name of the adaptor by going to the windows control panel and clicking on "Network Places" to see which adaptor handles your internet connection.
  2. Step 2 Enter a numerical value between 1400 and 1500 in the text box labeled "MTU". This numerical value is transmitted to every remote server you request data from to be used as a common size of data to be sent with every packet of data sent to your computer. It is advised you start at 1500 and move down in increments of 10 until a satisfactory result is found. Usually MTU problems are not a result of your hardware or the remote server. The problem almost always is ISP hardware not supporting frames as large as you and the remote server have agreed upon sending. Lowering your MTU value in increments allows you to find the largest size possible without having packets dropped due to being too large.
  3. Step 3 Click "Save" and exit the program by clicking "Exit" or clicking the "X" button in the upper right corner of the windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif form.
  4. Step 4 Restart your computer for the changes to take effect and check to see if the changed MTU has increased system network performance. This process of trial and error may require several attempts to find a setting that is optimal depending on your specific network configuration. If you are unable to find an MTU setting that works a quick call to your ISP to ask what their recommended MTU setting should resolve things.

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 a xbox 360 that fails the mtu portion of the network connection. i have at&t dsl that is run through the phone jack to the router ( 2wire 2701hg-b) and from the router to the xbox. what do you...


check on the MTU settings of ur 2wire.
This are the steps to see what ur MTU setting is:
>connect a computer to the 2wire
>open Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox
>enter this on the address bar: gateway.2wire.net/management
>enter ur system password (in case u forget this, click on i forgot my password to get a hint)
>look for Advance in the column on the left
>click on configure services
>on the bottom, u shud see the MTU number
** i searched online and accdg to xbox tech support, ur MTU should be in the range of 1364 to 1500 **
>click on submit after u change the setting
just in case youve entered the correct MTU setting but it still does not work, u might need to contact either xbox or ur internet service provider.

Keep me posted on this one.
