It will be in the Advanced section under WAN Setup.
Just a word of warning (sorry if I am teaching egg sucking) this value is normally fixed by your ISP and shouldn't be messed with so be careful.

If it is set/configured manually, then it is not "normally fixed by your ISP" as some AOL/TalkTalk subscribers will testify.

Thanks guys.
It is aol I am using.
The problem is, a few months ago I had to get a new router as the old one had packed up. With the old router, the signal to the laptop was always excellent wherever I was in the house.
However with the new one ( same make and model)signal strength is low to good.
Hence the question about the MTU settings.
With the old router I had to set it manualy as it was too high and I was having problems.

From the info on the FAQ link above, it appears that MTU settings have no effect on Wi-Fi signal strength.

Try changing the broadcasting channel. Log in to router and under wireless settings change the channel then click apply and log out. Had to change mine from 12 to 9. Find which is best for you.

The MTU setting for AOL/TalkTalk is 1432. See:

By the way, MTU settings will certainly have no effect on wi-fi signal strength.

Just for interest, the MTU for my wired modem router (Safecom) is configured in the PPPoA connection Setup panel.

I did use the word normally. Is it correct Bill day today or what?
