You don't change the adapter, it is a windows registry setting, you can download a toll from this website to make the required changes. http://www.dslreports.com/drtcp

I'm trying too get connected to xbox live but it's


This mainly depends on your internet modem, I use linksys when I play xbox live. Also I use wireless adapter, sometimes an ethernet cable as well to plug straight from my xbox to my modem. Make sure your modem is connected to the internet, and that if your xbox has a signal, or properly connected to it.
Hope this helps a little. Good Luck!

Why does my belkin g wireless modem router f5d7634 always disconnect every hour? i already turned the firewall off and yet it still disconnects from the internet. the globe led does not turn off but i...


You said that the Internet connection is dropping. It is a modem *** router.
If there is any MTU settings , then reduce the MTU.
For example If MTU is 1500 then reduce it to 1400.
Otherwise you will need to upgrade the Firmware of the router.

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.

How do i change the mtu setting on my belkin n wireless router


You can adjust MTU from within the Belkin Router administrative console. You really should not be changing it unless your current ISP gives you a specific MTU setting, otherwise you could disrupt internet connectivity.


Default IP address: http://192.168.2.1
Default admin username: Administrator
Default admin password: <blank>
Be sure to set a password for your router!

This is the address where you change MTU
192.168.2.1/wan_pppoe.html

Unalbe to connect ot x box live


Have you verified that on the router end of things?

On your computer, open up your browser and type in "192.168.1.1" on the address bar (where you type websites)

Next it will prompt you for a username and password. By default leave the username blank, and enter "admin" as the password.

When the page loads you will see a tab that says "Setup", click that. You will a setting that says MTU, change that to "Manual" and set the size to 1400, then hit "Save Settings"

After that unplug and re-plug your router (give about 20 seconds in between) and restart your XBOX. You should be good to go. If that does not work try to bypass the router and connect it directly to the modem to see if you have the same issue

Internet connection


try to update the router's firmware to the latest one, if conection is still dropping try lowering the MTU size(by default its set to auto) to 1492, 1480, 1472, 1450 check which MTU size will make you connection stable.

Downloads stop


I would suggest lowering the MTU (maximum transfer unit) in the router settings.

the highest you can set an MTU is 1500 (except for AOL, it is a bit lower), this will be the fastest, but also the most unreliable.

Try changing it alot lower, see if it helps (you will experience slower internet at this point but see if the downloads complete), if it does, gradually increase the number until everything doesn't cut off anymore.

Hope this helps
