This is the culprit to all my hotmail/ftp/etc problems. The trouble is I have no idea what it does, what it means or where I can change it.

I really need help as after googling it nothing makes sense and few places use proper english to explain the situation. :confused:

well I can tell you it stands for maximum transmissible unit and that means the largest packet of data that your computer can recieve/send at once, people usually set a low one for gaming (as with gaming, packets are frequent and small) while a large one is used for downlooads (as a large packet requires less header packets overall, thus less overall bandwidth). I dunno why it would affect your network connection capabilities though...

Sounds like a kernel setting to me.
