Hi, I am trying connect my Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, I have a ethernet cable connected to my router, which is a Microsoft MN-700. My Xbox is telling me to check the MTU setting, the Maximum Transmission Unit setting on my router or gateway. The minimum requirement setting to connect to Xbx Live is 1364. Where do i change the MTU setting in my Microsoft MN-700 router? Thanks

After going through the online documentation it doesn't look like you can change the MTU. Have you verified that the firmware version is one of the following:
Version 02.00.07.0331
Version 02.00.08.0333
Version 02.01.02.0590
These are the ones that Microsoft is listing as compatable with the Live service. If your version doesn't match here is a link to Microsoft's site and instructions on how to get and install the update

If your router has a web interface then open a browser and type

192.168.0.1 into the adress bar. This should open the username and password dialogue box to yhe router. Enter your username and password, if you havent set it yourself possibly admin admin (search internet for default settings). Once in the web interface you should be able to change many settings. Once of which will be MTU.
