XBox 360 MTU Failed with Router

Is there a method to change the MTU setting with the 2350 ? I have looked in settings and do not see where this can be done. XBox 360 will not work while hooked up with this router because of MTU setting.
thanx

    No luck, it is sounding more and more like a new router in the offerings. Always something.

    1st we had "cavalier DSL and this router. The XBOX worked fine. on 12/31 we switched to Comcast Cable now we get MTU failed message. I really don't think its the router, it's something in the XBOX. But I still can't figure it out. If any has any suggestions, please help!! The kids are driving me crazy.

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

If you switched to comcast, the best thing to do would be buy a gaming router, the cheapest of high quality run at a hefty 90 dollars. Through reading reviews however it seems that the D-Link Broadband Gigabit Gaming Router is the cheapest and most cost efficient investment. I've tried everything I could find through forums, support, and calling to foreign countries for minimal advice. For some reason comcast has issues with router connections and the MTU... My suggestion is simply to buy a new router. It's the fastest and most pleasant way of gaming on XBox.

Not sure specifically about the Dell 2350 router, but these instructions might help:

Look for WAN settings... then "ATM PVC".. then go into "VC1".. you might find MTU there.

My xbox live is saying mtu failed


Hi,

MTU stands for maximum transmission unit, which is, the maximum data that can be transmitted each time a network device sends out a signal.
I don't think you can change the MTU in the Xbox 360 dashboard.
You will probably have to go through a router to get around it.

the Maximum transmission unit is 1500, but for the Xbox 360 it must be set within the range 1364 – 1492.

So please access to the router setting on your PC & set it within the range 1364 – 1492 or call your ISP or router manufacturer to assist you doing so if you do not know how to access to your router settings.

I can give some steps to access router settings,

The way to access to your router settings differs from one router to another but basically it will always be through your PC most of them would be as follows:
1. Open an Internet explorer page on your PC.
2. On the address bar type 192.168.1.1 as for Netgear routers and 192.168.2.1 as for Belkin routers or 192.168.1.1 as linksys routers, if you have even any other brand you can try these three numbers I reckon one of them will work.
3. Then you click GO.
4. You'll get your router settings main page on the screen asking you for your Username & password usually by default the password will be even the same as the Username (Username: admin, Password: admin) OR it will be password (Password: password).
5. You can there look for MTU settings, it differs from one router to another you can just look for it then set it to 1365 as we said before.


Hope my info fix your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

360 mtu test keeps failing


Access the routers setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 (ip address of the router) on the address bar on IE.

then on basic setup page at the bottom part of the page you will see MTU normally its on auto,
to change the value set it to manual. ask your isp what is their prefferred value for the mtu you can go as high as 1300 to 1500.

I know your issue. If your trying to raise the MTU for game compatibility, such as XBox 360 live (which I was), the router is useless. Through several calls to dell Technical Support I've concluded that the router is outdated and furthermore somewhat weak to begin with. I recommend a new router, priced at a cool 90 dollars. Good reviews and XBox 360 compatible, it's the cheapest gaming router around.

Mtu


If you have your Xbox connected through a router, most routers, on their control panel (192.168.1.100 for example) give you the option of setting an MTU, or leaving it to default. This option is normally found on the setup page of your routers control panel.

MTU stands for maximum transmission unit, basically a speed thing.

If you can set it, change it to something above 1500 depending on how fast your internet connection is, but I am fairly certain that 1500 is the minimum that you would want to have set for xbox live.

Another way to do it is, if your router has this option, set the MTU to Automatic. That way your router (should) be able to do all of that dynamically as the need arises.

I hope this helps to solve your problem, good luck!

XBox 360 MTU Failed with Router


MTU of 1500 is the standard TCP/IP message length. Only MS Vista allows that to be changed dynamically. If your ISP uses 1500 then you need to use it too. Your Xbox protocol may be blocked by your ISP. You may want to give them a ring...

MTU con connecting. How to fix ?


What does MTU do on Xbox Live?

The MTU of your router or gateway must be greater than or equal to 1365. If it is less than 1365, you won’t be able to connect to Xbox Live.


To change the MTu login to your admin router panel:
  1. Go to start>Run>cmd>type ipconfig
  2. look for "default gateway" then type that address into your router login, usally the login is admin/admin if not look in your manual or call your router maker.
  3. Now login locate the area to adjust the MTU if you cant find it, contact the router maker, or look in your manual.
