network connections - local area connection properties - configure  near your network adapter - advanced tab - jumbo frames or mtu option

You can change the MTU in the registry - http://www.pctools.com/guides/registry/detail/280/

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?

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...

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>

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

>> 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.
