So got sky and set their router mtu to 1458...
A week later the router updates its firmware from 1.11 to 2.04 and am now connected to mer instead of pppoa. the mtu on the router can no longer be changed and is hard set to 1500.
Ok, so I try setting the pc mtu to 1500, it says ok but on a reset it goes back to 1458.
I set it by running cmd as admin and paste this ... netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Local Area Connection" mtu=1500 store=persistent
But it just keeps going back to 1458
And why do the doughnuts at sky enable 'respond to pings' by default, this is a security risk.
EPIC FAIL ... Ping Reply: RECEIVED (FAILED) — Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests, making it visible on the Internet. Most personal firewalls can be configured to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests in order to better hide systems from hackers. This is highly recommended since "Ping" is among the oldest and most common methods used to locate systems prior to further exploitation.
