Upgrading to 1mbit tomorrow...Question

I'm upgrading from 512 to 1mbit tomorrow, and I'm on Mac OS X.

Is there anything I need to do to optimise my new connection, or tweak any settings etc.?

I'm using an ethernet modem.

Thanks!

Mark

Yo may need to change your MTU value in th emodem (if it supports it) and your Mac (again if it is possible). Windows has a RWIN (Receive window size) value which often need to be doubled when your speed increases. I'm not sure if the Mac has that config anywhere.

See MTU tweak.

Thanks!

What MTU setting should I use then?
