> emieng, don't use any MTU program with OSR2 Windows 95b.
Dennis can you enlarge on this as there is currently a lot of discussion around on the subject and your respected optinion seems contrary to a lot of other talk that is around.   Any other comments would also be of interest.

Sure can Alan!  MTU, as shareware, was released as a fix developed by a couple of associates to 2 popular modems companies as there was no way to adjust the packet size in windows 95 950 or 950a. Microsoft made a MTU adjustable in OSR2 and changed the socket configuration. If you apply the shareware, it locks the entries and thus no way to make the adjustments without removing the reg key, writing in what should be the correct one (and hope it works) and go from there. MTU adjustments were meant to remain as part of the dynamic portion of the registry, not as a locked value. For instance, if you have a very poor ISP and old POTS lines, a smaller packet size (lower MTU number) will work better 576 or less. If your running ISDN, you can double to quadruple that number. If you would like, I'll post a couple of URL's for you!

Dennis I certainly would be interested to have at look at the information available at the URLs you mention.  Thanks.   I will not Grade this as yet to leave it open for further comment.   I wish there was a search engine available on Experts as I find this sort of info is invaluable.

Some may have changed their content, but on the whole these should give you what you need. There's a neat little search program that searches the top 50 search engines and their sites, it's like a spider search. It's called Internet EZsearch.

Dennis can you "point m" at Internet EZsearch.   And thanks for those links.  One particularly helped clarify how to best use MTUSpeed.  So that helps.
