Thanks dear. IT was a great help. I was facing the same problem as u mentioned. Yahoo was not at all opening. After setting MTU as suggested, its working fine now. Thanks a lot.

Neerajkumar R said...

Thanks for the post. I have doubt.
If i provide the ISP password with 'n' characters and then clcik apply. The password then changes to 8 characters. Is this the default behavior.
For example: ISP Password is "apple". If i click apply it will change to 8 characters.

I couldn't set the MTU to 1460. When I tried to save this value, the following message is getting.

DMZ IP is out of range (1-254).

And now I cant open certain sites like yahoo....

Akarsh Seggemu said...

@Anonymous & @Anonymous & @Anonymous & @Pritam & @Anonymous & @Anonymous & @Anonymous You are Welcome

@Hashiq change the mtu value to 1420, 1430,1450 if 1460 as 1460 is not working for you

sourav said...

Good Post. However I keep changing the MTU size from 1432, 1460 and 1492. Its like each site has its own way coming through. Sad but I find it real pain. My neighbors using T-Link(I guess) and since they installed it, they never face any issue unless BSNL server is down or power supply ;)

Hi, The post is really nice very few of technology blogs having information about Netgear Router Tehnical Supportsetup the post is so helpful for technical professionals.

Akarsh Seggemu said...

i had emailed you
@parth agarwal
i would advice to check the type of connection,
the settings of wifi router and laptop wifi settings
i would advice to contact the service provider & recheck the cabling of the router
so that you can get the speed back & also the network setting in computer and anti virus settings
yeah you can change it try checking with some websites with different mtu values

My Netgear N150 wifi modem was configured by the provider's office, but some important sites could not be accessed. I again contacted their higher authorities from where I got a wrong message that it is not the fault of configuration and contact the Modem Manufacturers.In fact I have no others to get help. Then I searched in Google and found this detailed illustration. Thanks a lot. Keep it up.
