Changing MTU size in Win2000 Pro

The router my clients use will not allow you to change the
default MTU size. Is it possible to change the default MTU
size on the client computers. The clients all run Win 2000
Pro.

Hello All,


Open up regedit and navigate to:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\<ID for
Adapter>
where <ID for Adapter> represents the key for the Ethernet card that is
being used.

Value Type: REG_DWORD"number of bytes" 1500 is the standard MTU for
ethernet.
Name: MTU
