  • Verify the ADSL cable is securely inserted into both themodem/router’s ADSL port and the microfilter.
  • If you have multiple telephone sockets on your premises, ensurethat the modem/router is connected to the master socket, i.e. theone closest to the point the telephone line enters thepremises.
  • If you have other devices attached to your telephone line,ensure that these are plugged into a microfilter. If the line issplit, e.g. using splitters or by having multiple extensions, makesure that the microfilter is plugged in before the split, or ensurethat all devices after the split are plugged into a microfilterthemselves.

To find the proper MTU Size, you’ll have to do a special ping of the destination you’re trying to go to. A destination could be another computer, or a URL.

Step 1 Click on Start and then click Run.

Step 2 Windows NT, 2000, and XP users type in cmd and press Enter (or click OK).

Step 3 Once the window opens, you’ll need to do a special ping. Use the following syntax:

ping [url] [-f] [-l] [MTU value]

Example: ping yahoo.com -f -l 1472


You should start at 1472 and work your way down by 10 each time. Once you get a reply, go up by 2 until you get a fragmented packet. Take that value and add 28 to the value to account for the various TCP/IP headers. For example, lets say that 1452 was the proper value, the actual MTU size would be 1480, which is the optimum for the network we’re working with (1452+28=1480).

Once you find your MTU, you can now configure your router with the proper MTU size.
