No MaxMTU settings found on Win98--What to do

No MaxMTU settings found on Win98--What to do

Post by CP » Sat, 04 Jul 1998 04:00:00


I was trying to apply the MTU/MSS/DefRecieveWindow/DefTTl settings to
get better transmission speeds and so I opened my System Registry.

I went to the relevant sections
and *\Services\VxD\MSTCP). I looked at all the subkeys that were
relevant to TCP and geuss what?

Not a single one made any mention of MaxMTU, MaxMSS, Def.Recieve
Window or Default TTL. Does Windows98 have some default value for
these or not need them? If there were a default, I assume it would be
in the registry.

I really want to increase my speeds and want to know what would happen
if I added the relevant values (increased of course) to the
appropriate subkeys. Some of the subkeys ave multiple entries for TCP;
which one do I use?

Any help would be appreciated

You have to add them, you should only have one entry referencing tcp/ip, the
others should be Netbui, IPX/SPX etc., here is a link to a program that does
it for you:
(thanks to Jahoo)
download TcpAdjust, install it, run it, select "max" and "save" or adjust the
values to whatever you want, reboot and the keys will be there, or you can
add them manually, I did some testing with win98, I had heard it would be
self tuning etc. but these changes made the same increase in speed as they
did in win95, Darrell
