1) using my pc over a ICS LAN every so often i have to go into the registry to change my MTU settings. Im not sure why but when i try going on the internet only google and a few other sites work, the rest time out.
Using the CMD prompt i can ping the lan to get the correct settings, as so:
ping -f -l 1454 192.168.0.1
This tells me i need to change my MTU setting (default 1500) to 1454. I do this, restart my pc and voila, i can again use Download Managers and open ANY site.
Question is why do i need to keep changing this all the time?
Ill clear up if bit complicated.
2) can i determine kb/s by packets recieved per second? Is there a way to do this as i am a software developer would be interested to know.
