Hi,

Just joined Orcon and wondered what the MTU setting should be on my router.
It is currently at the default of 1500 and working fine but just curious?

Also, anyone know the Orcon DNS server IP's?

Thank you.
Steve.

Primary Name Server/DNS : 60.234.1.1
Secondary Name Server/DNS : 60.234.2.2

However, try and avoid hardcodeing your DNS servers, as PPP will assign them to you when your modem logs in.

MTU of 1500 is normal.

1500 is the default and usually the best.

You can test this with the "Largest MTU" tab in TCP Optimizer from speedguide.net
