RE: mtu

Maxium Transmitable Unit is the size of the packet you send and recieve if its wrong it get fragmented and has to be rebuilt which causes loss or slow speed. For dial up its normaly set low but for lans and adsl its around 1500.

The problem is people are reseting theirs at a guess and its diffrent for each set of equipment. You need to test your own to get the best. go to

I found setting my MTU to 1458 made a big difference. I used DRTCP to change the settings, can't remember the address but DRTCP typed into Google will find it.
