In windows, I can change the MTU, DefaultRcvWindow, DefaultTTL, and the ComBoostTime settings. Are there any scripts for this in Linux? Or can I pass options in the kernel? I use a 3com DOCSIS cable modem (broadband) hooked to a Digital Ethernet NIC 21143 model (tulip.o module).

Linux 2.2.19 kernel

man ifconfig will give you the options for interfaces
MTU is one of them

Thanks. I was able to find out the settings for my cable connection, and actually, they're okay. Now I can change them if I ever need to.
