Changing MTU Setting

I wish to change my Internet Standard from 1500 to 576. I tryed to do this by:
1-Click START
2-Select RUN
3-Type REGEDIT and hit Return
4-From the "EDIT" menu, select FIND
5-Enter MAXMTU in the text area
6-Click OK
7-When you find the key,double click on its value in the right hand pane.(NOTE:This is where My problem starts,I don't know which key to click on. When I select FIND the computer says it has searched the registry but nothing shows up in the right hand pane)

There are programs that will let you change these options through a GUI. InternetBoost99 and TweakDUN are a couple I have used. You should be able to find either of them by doing a web search. Alot safer than messing in the registry.

1.Run Regedit.exe

2. Find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Enum\Root\Net and within there will be one or more sub-keys such as 0000, 0001 ...

3. Open each key and find the one that contains the value of 'DeviceDesc' equal to 'Dial-Up Adapter'.

4. Within that key there will also be another sub-key named 'Bindings'. Open the 'Bindings' sub-key and you will find a string name like 'MSTCP\0000'. Take note of the four digit number after 'MSTCP' (in this case 0000) and use it in the next step.

5. Now go to the key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Enum\Network\MSTCP' and expand the sub-key with the same four digit number as from the previous step.

6. In this key you will find a value called 'Driver' and it will be equal to something similar to'NetTrans\0002'. Take note of this four digit number (in this case 0002) and use it in the next step.

7. Now open the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans] below there will be one or more sub-key's. Expand the key with the name equal to the four digit number from the previous step.

8. Within this key create a new string value named 'MaxMTU' and set it to '576', and also add a string value named 'MaxMSS' and set it to '536'.

9. Then exit the registry and restart your computer.
