View Full Version : Why is MTU 1362 on bfsr41?!?
01-14-01, 12:24 PM
i used drtcp to set my mtu at 1492, but every time i go to dslreports.com and try the tweak tester it says my mtu is 1362!!! it is slowing me down about 15-20 kbps. any help would be greatly appreciated!!
first I would go to the registry myself and see what it accully is. do this by typing regedit in the "start, Run menu. you can find the right registry key by going here

mtu is set to 1492
default rcv window is set to 256960
(i used the speedguide tweak and undid the drtcp settings)
dslreports tweak tester still says 1362

OK, What this means is that 1362 is the Max that your ISP or the first router in the network will accept before it partitions that packet. this number is good to know to tweak your RcvWindow setting. it should be a multiple of your MSS ie...4Xmss or 8Xmss.
(ps) there is a way to ping your isp and find that exact amount size packet it will handle. let me know if your interested
