My Xbox live requires me to set the MTU to 1364 but I cannot find anywhere on my DLINK DSL2642B router to set the MTU, any ideas?


1. Connect to your router's admin interface. Usually 192.168.0.1. The default username is "admin" (without the quotes) and the default password is blank.

2. Click on the WAN button from the left vertical menu.

3. Find the "MTU" towards the bottom, enter your desired MTU value (usually 1500, or 1492 for PPPoE) in the text field, and click Apply. The router will restart to apply the new settings.

How do I adjust my MTU setting on my router?


An appropriate MTU value is important to the proper operation of any network. To change the MTU on a DI series D-Link router, simply follow the steps below:


1. Connect to your router's admin interface. Usually 192.168.0.1. The default username is "admin" (without the quotes) and the default password is blank.

2. Click on the WAN button from the left vertical menu.

3. Find the "MTU" towards the bottom, enter your desired MTU value (usually 1500, or 1492 for PPPoE) in the text field, and click Apply. The router will restart to apply the new settings.

Resetting problem


Hi!

The problem that you are experiencing is an intermittent internet connection. This has something to do with your router's MTU settings (Maximum Transmission Unit). Lowering it down can fix the issue. Some ISP's have their own dedicated MTU but some just use the default values. Its better to ask your ISP what the right MTU to be used on your router.

Lowering MTU

1. Access your router's Setup Page or Admin Page through Internet Explorer. Type http://192.168.1.1 press enter. It will prompt you for username and password. By default type admin for username and password.

2. If you have the router's setup page opened, look for MTU settings. Default value is Automatic (1500). Set it to Manual MTU and set the size to 1492 and save the settings. Also check if you have there an option like "Keep Alive" and you need to select that.

3. Reboot your router after reducing the size of MTU. Observe the connection again if the same problem persists.

Note: If the MTU value 1492 didn't help, try these values; 1463 and 1400

Good Luck

Mtu


You must set your MTU in your modem/router just login to it and search for it in the configuration menu.
Usually you have to set it to 1492 though so if you should have set the MTU to 1364 already and it didnt work try this one as well.
For cable and DSL modems you should set it to 1492 in general as well for a proper connection.

The MTU is the maximum size that an IP-packet that is transfered across the internet may have just for general information.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Netgear DG834v4 router No accesswhen downloading large files


All you need to do is lower down the MTU value of the router. By default it is set to Auto with a value of 1500. To reduce the MTU, open the router's admin page and look for MTU setting. Set it to Manual Value and set the size to 1492 if you have DSL internet, and 1463 if you have Cable Internet. 1400 for general.

E-mail connection problem. I can't receive e-mails.


The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) settings need to be adjusted in the router.
1. Connect to your router's admin interface. Open a browser page type in 192.168.1.1. The default username is blank, default password is "admin" (without the quotes).

2. Click on the Advanced tab from the menu.

3. Select the Filters tab and find "MTU" towards the bottom. Select "Enable", enter your desired MTU value (usually 1500, or 1492 for DSL) in the text field on the right, and click Apply. The router will restart to apply the new settings.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

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.

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.
