One of the most common and easies ways to change the MTU settings is with the DrTCP tool:

Keep in mind default is 1500
If you have a PPPoE internet connection it is 1492 or less
and different VPN's require lower as well.

My favourite:
netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Local Area Connection" mtu=<value> store=persistent

Run this form a command prompt.

Most UK based ISPs use PPoA - the check the MTU with the provider - many stipulate 1400

@and235100

Isn't that pretty much the same information I just posted an hour ago?  Good job?

and235100Commented:
I always find it good to quote a Microsoft reference, if at all possible.
Then the Asker knows that an "Expert" is not making it up...

Rob WilliamsCommented:
Rogiee. Is not what you posted not exactly what KCTS posted 2 days ago? Only his include how to create the key as it does not exist until changed once. <G>

and235100Commented:
totalsolution - the points in this Q should have been awarded to KCTS.
The link the Expert gave gives the same information that was posted by Rogiee - but KCTS posted 2 days before.

You will need to justify this points allocation.

KCTSCommented:
Mmm! - the accepted answer is indeed a direct copy of the link that I posted 2 days ago :-(
You arn't going to win many friends like that!

I have posted this to get the Asker to justify the reasons for the current Accepted solution.

I too would have to agree with awarding KCTS the points, if looking for votes.

and235100----so you're reposting information that I reposted?

KCTSCommented:
I think is very rude of you Rogiee to simply repeat what has been said and take the credit for someone else's answer.

and235100Commented:
Rogiee - you might learn, in time, that just copying the same info that a fellow Expert has given, even in a link - as I said - it is a well-known external resource, in not to be tolerated.

The Asker should not have accepted your answer. You can complain when you have a little more experience in the way of EE works outside of the Lounge.

It is not acceptable to repost the same information in a technical zone.

RogieeCommented:
Then why did you repost what I posted?

A little contradictory, dontcha think?

and lol@i need more "EE experience" to complain.  Get real.  Move on.

KCTS----Tell me when and where to post a question and I let y ou earn your points back if it will make you shut up

Rob WilliamsCommented:
Perhaps before this leads to some name calling and some possible regrets we should let the moderators review and make a ruling.
I am sure and235100's request in the General TA will be reviewed in short order.

totalsolution,

and235100 has asked (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_23023440.html) for an explanation of why you selected the
answer(s) you selected for this question.
 
Please indicate your reasoning within the next four days.  I or another Moderator will check
back in about four days, at which time we expect to see your explanation.

To other participating Experts: please leave your recommendations as well.

After reviewing the explanation and other recommendations, the Moderator may decide to
change the award for the question.

Thank you,

>> Then why did you repost what I posted?

I didn't actually - I provided the Asker with a Microsoft published resource.
This means that the Asker doesn't have to just take mine (or your's) word for it - it is published information by the developers/publishers of the software!

This means that it is not a "repost" as you say. This is perfectly acceptable.
Your original post however - was exactly that, a "repost".

>>  Get real.  Move on.  
I already have. This kind of comment of yours is also not acceptable outside of the Lounge.
