Log into router by typing the ip address of router, usually 192.168.1.1 into an address bar (IE or My Computer). Enter in the router username and password, usually defaults to blank username with the password as "admin".
Then on the setup page you can make the MTU whatever you want.

I have a Motorola WR850G router which works just fine for broadband internet access for our laptop and our desktop. We are trying to connect xBox Live and we are getting an error message that Maximum...


Starting on page 3-3 of the WR850G user manual, there is a setting for "PPP MTU".
Whether or not this will change the overall MTU of the router is not clear. Apparently the default setting is "0", which I would guess is automatic. I would try changing the setting to 1500 and work your way down from there until xbox live is hopefully satisfied.
Good luck...

MTU settings are set independantly of other network protocols.

Google MTU ~ xbox ~ and your specific use to find an ideal value to set your MTU to which may well differ from documentation you may have about your device/requirement.

Xbox live MTU failure


The reason why you're getting an MTU error is because the MTU has already reached the maximum # of packets that are being sent. To resolve it.
Access the GUI of your Linksys Router and go to the MTU settings. Set it to 1500. The lower, the better

Connecting router to xbox live


To change the router's MTU, do the following steps.

1. Open Internet Explorer and type http://192.1680.1.1 on the address bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. By default, no username and password is admin. If the default password didn't work, try to type your own password for the router.
3. When you get to the setup page, under the Setup Tab, look for MTU. By default it is set to Auto 1500. Just click on Manual and set your preferred value.
4. Click on Save Settings at the bottom of the page.

You're all set.

Hello my mtu is sayin its failed


The MTU(Maximum Transmission Unit) failure when testing the xbox's connection can be do to a few things because Xbox live requires a minimum MTU setting of 1364. Sharing a slower internet connection with other PC's in the house can cause this error, The incorrect MTU setting in your routers programming can cause this error, The lack of firmware updates to your router can cause this error, an older modem from your service provider can cause this. Old or worn network cables and jacks and or RG(coax) cables if you have cable internet could cause this. Your Router or gateway could be incompatible with Xbox live.

Try a direct connection to the Xbox without a router and reset your modem before doing it. If your able to connect then you know its the router. If not you know its the modem or cables or jacks or even your Xbox if you havent tested it elsewhere.
You can tell your ISP to mail you the newest updated modem... sometimes they will have a guy just drop one off.

Slow internet responses


MTU Means Maximum transmission unit In computer networking, the term Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) refers to the size (in bytes) of the largest packet that a given layer of a communications protocol can pass onwards. MTU parameters usually appear in association with a communications interface (NIC, serial port, etc.). The MTU may be fixed by standards (as is the case with Ethernet) or decided at connect time (as is usually the case with point-to-point serial links). A higher MTU brings higher bandwidth efficiency. However, large packets can block up a slow interface for some time, increasing the lag for further packets. For example, a 1500 byte packet, the largest allowed by Ethernet at the network layer (and hence most of the Internet), would tie up a 14.4k modem for about one second
