MTU setting


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I have a DG834PN downstairs with an MTU of 1458 which is default.

Upstairs I have a WNR2000 cable router which is set up as an access point. The MTU of this is 1500.

Should I set it up on 1458 or change the MTU on the PN to 1500?

Pages seem to be quite slow when access the net through the WNR2000.

Thanks.

Changed it to 1458 and the pages are now loading a lot faster.

Thanks.

I would set them all to 1500, the ethernet and windows default.

You certainly don't want them to be different for no reason.
