As of 10/15/01, there is no known way to raise MTU in WinXP from 1480. This issue is seen only by WinXP users who are connecting with the built-in
PPPoE connection software. If you change to RASPPPoE
, or use a router instead, your MTU should then default to 1492. RASPPPoE is popular, free and less problematic than WinPoet (another choice).
This small difference (12 bytes) in MTU is negligible
, however, and should cause no concern. Check back from time to time, though, for a "fix."
