My ISP's Internet connection has an MTU size of 1460, as determined by using



C:\Windows\System32>ping www.google.com -f -l 1432

I can change the MTU size in Windows 7 via netsh but the option to modify the MTU and MSS in the router are not editable and both values are set to 1492.

Interestingly, the pppo interface does show and MTU size of 1460, which is correct.

So, the question is, do I actually need to change the settings for these values in the router and if so, how?

Incidentally, I am getting network drop-outs, it is for this reason I am investigating these settings.

Thanks
