Tweaks for a DLink G604T

I've just moved over from Metronet and moved from a 1MB line to a 2MB line.. I'm not on Max as it just doesn't work (trust me on that one).

Anyway..

Speed tests (on here) show:

17-05-2007 20:22:54 1186.5
17-05-2007 20:22:13 1266.5
16-05-2007 21:18:14 1657
15-05-2007 18:59:45 1512.7
15-05-2007 18:59:25 1577.7

Router shows:

SNR Margin
Down: 17
Up : 29

Line Attenuation
Down: 46
Up : 30

Logs show no errors or problems.

Router is running :

ADSL Firmware Version: 6.00.01.00 - 6.00.01.00 - 6.00.04.00 Annex A - 01.07.2b - 0.54
ADSL Software Version: V3.00B01T02.EU-A.20060720

MTU: 1400
MRU: 1492

So anything I can do to improve the speed? Not that its a major pain as I mainly surf but....

OK

I dug round and found some posts which suggested tweaking the MTU to 1500.

I rebooted the router, ran a speed test, set the mtu, rebooted the router and ran a speed test :

18-05-2007 07:43:19 1884.7
18-05-2007 07:30:24 1412.6

the 1884.7 is faster than a 2MB line according to plusnet Wink

1500 - very interesting results. Everyhting works fine except MS Messenger.

Gaim will connect to the MS servers but Messenger barfs out.

So I tweaked it down and killed my local webserver Shockedops: Shockedops:
