Re: 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...

SOURCE: XBox 360 MTU Failed with Router

ive got ur solution right here guys...
go to start - run - type in "regedit" (without parenthises)
press CTRL+F
paste this in and search

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)

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

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:
>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.

360 mtu test keeps failing

Access the routers setup page by typing (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 failed

what kind of router are you using to connect your xbox 360 to? usually you can define the MTU size in the router configuration.. default for xbox 360 live is 1364 ... check out your web configuration on your router to see if you can change this!
