MTU - Again...

Hi Folks

ADSL live today (yippee), via Netgear DG814. All seems well. Updated software to V4.8 July 09 2003.

Since upgrading to 4.8, I note that MTU has defaulted to 1458, previously it was 1500, I think. I note also various posts, FAQ's about not tweaking MTU. That's all very well, but what *IS* the recommended default these days? (Sorry, I know it probably says so somewhere, just can't find it.

Either 1458 or 1500.

BT have allmost illminated the issue with the MTU value, and are in the final steps of services exchanges.

Many people are still afftected by the 1500 issue, however, due to the fact BT have enabled many exchanges to work properly with 1500, it will not be as obvious to those that are still in the bad zones.

Try using 1500 and perform some tests. However, for stability, use 1458.

OK Thanks.. I will play..

I played.... makes no real difference.. both settings hover around the 975-976 Kbs, with the occassional 970. Will leave MTU at the Netgear current default of 1458, for now at least.

Thanks again for your reply, appreciated.
