Having a weird issue onsite where the MTU on a Vodafone business UFB connection in Wellington only supports an MTU of 1462.
On Windows I can do
ping 8.8.8.8 -l 1420 -f
And get a response but if I have a ping size of 1421 which would give a total packet size of 1463 then I don't get a response.
Don't have this issue on Vodafone mobile and seems to only be an issue on fixed broadband.

Anyone else having this issue?

What router are you using? Also there are some Windows settings that could limit it - when you say it's ok on mobile is that on the same PC and network connection?

Just to confirm, works fine for me on residential UFB with the UltraHub - up to 1472.

I have the same issue with the Vodafone issued HG659 with Vodafone firmware.

Also when I connect my laptop to my phone in hotspot mode I don't have this issue.

Could be a business broadband thing or something specific to Wellington.

Time to log a call with the help desk tomorrow. Wish me luck. :/

I'm able to run at both 1500 and 1492 here on VF...

I am on Voda UFB (cable) in Wellington ... TCPOptimizer tells me I'm running at 1500 MTU.

One thing to check is I am using DHCP not PPPoE as that's how the Vodafone router was setup.
Logged a case yesterday with the business help desk. Hoping I get a call back today or whenever from the T2 guys.

BarTender: One thing to check is I am using DHCP not PPPoE


My numbers were dhcp then pppoe to cover all the basis.

Good luck with the big red t2 guys

It turns out it is an issue with the access point onsite. After much diagnosis of the Router (including testing a completely separate HG659), the onsite router, switch and access points.

 

For some odd reason the APs don't seem to handle packets above 1462. Put in another test AP I have here at home and have sorted it. Plus logged a case with the wireless provider saying it's an issue with their gear.

Oh man... how embarassing, blaming your ISP for a user issue :-)

 

Cheers - N :-)

Meraki. Have a full Meraki Router + Switch + AP setup here, and the router and switch are fine but any large packets that goes over the wireless network get dropped. Case has been logged and I will see how I go.
