Thread: 56K modem settings

    Default 56K modem settings

    I tried using TCP Optimizer to change the MTU setting for a Vista
    computer I was working on, but the modem did not appear in the drop
    down list of adapters. Only listed were the wireless and ethernet
    connectors. I moved the slider switch from 3000 to 56K and went to
    Optimal settings and saved, but the MTU of 576 did not take after the
    reboot.



    Where do I go in Vista to optimize the internet connection for a
    computer that most of the time uses the 56K modem to access the
    internet?

    Thanks

    This was a laptop computer, I just removed the modem from the list of
    devices and refreshed and let vista find it again and install the
    drivers. The modem performance did not seem to change, so that ruled
    out a driver issue.

    There is no version of TCP Optimizer for Vista. The TCP/IP Stack in Vista
    has been rewritten from scratch.

    Try DrTCP to change your MTU settings.
    It worked in XP.
    Have not had to use it in Vista.
