Yahoo Mail And MTU Problem

Your MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) should be 1500, your MSS (Maximum Segment Size) should be someting less, such as 1460(or your 1452). If you set this parameter to 0, an MTU of 576 bytes is used for all connections that are not to computers on the local subnet. I've never had that problem but there is a lot of information available on the internet - just Google 'Black Hole router'. Why can't this get solved? have a peek here

Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended. This means that if you change the MTU it will not stick. On your internal sub-net, Your router will also set the MTU between it and your computer (the internal host that resides on the subnet). Without actually saying so I think they also admit to not knowing much about how WinXP-SP2 works.

Hope it helps. The AOL network runs at an MTU of 1400. It has been reverted to 1500 (default).

New Yahoo Mail in Browsers & Mail Anyway to transfer back to the old Yahoo Classic ? I saw on other routers MTU size was 1440. Now the MTU came to 1460. I've been scouring the 'net looking, anywhere, for others having similar problems, then I saw your post.

To think that I had been living without Yahoo at home for last 6 months! My System Specs You need to have JavaScript enabled so that you can use this ... I'm stumped. if you go to the admin page for your modem it will tell you the IP that Bellsouth gives you.

However, when I take the D-Link out of the mix (connect the PC directly to the DSL modem) everything works as it should. WinXP sets the MTU based on the current performance of the stream. Any ideas? Hack attempt on my PC [Security] by Bryantf1982361.

Generally, you don't need any "software" to make a router work. please helpi just exported my whole config if you want to have a lookCode: Select all

MMM MMM It's really not hard, you will web into the router and configure it, for example: Make sure you have updated firmware for your specific version. AstroPulse is funded in part by the NSF through grant AST-0307956.

Thank you for helping us maintain CNET's great community. navigate here Anyone experienced the same ? WinXP will reset the entries to whatever it prefers. Why do people Uninstall and reinstall Firefox and say it does not help?

You will find other info at the site about ports for other applications also: Have fun! you may go to wan settings, Advanced, change MTU to 1440 or 1400.

Take that value and add 28 to the value to account for the various TCP/IP headers. which would be the optimal option to take? Now everything works fine.

Without actually saying so I think they also admit to not knowing much about how WinXP-SP2 works.

But it's difficult to do since I'm not sure what's the best way to describe the problem, or what to search on.

I have always been able to go back and check it in IE even when I have not been able to access it in Firefox. If discovery is enabled, TCP attempts to discover the MTU (largest packet size +/- MSS) over the path to each remote host. There may registry entries that can defeat this mechanism but I don't know of any. this contact form I use yahoo mail and cannot send emails through IE 10.

Just not sure which should be the better setting, What the router itself found to be its best oppinion during setup or AOL which says its network works at 1400? hey presto, Yahoo works properly.
