Fix For Virgin.netís Broadband ADSL
By: MarkJ - 05 November, 2003 (8:56 AM)

It's been suggested that customers experiencing problems with Virgin's broadband ADSL service may be able to solve them by tweaking the TCP/IP settings, specifically the MTU:

The optimal values appear to be a MTU of 1430, and a RWIN value of 13900.

ADSLGuide has pointed out two sites where information (guides) for making such alterations can be found:

http://freespace.virgin.net/adsl.tech/

Several people have reported success, although we must stress that these settings can be temperamental and may not solve the problem (always remember the original settings). Note that this will NOT solve the dialup related complaints.
