Get the most juice from your ISP/router — setting MTU size & other handy tweaks

This is not an ad-vocation by any means for TP-link branding, however a real life scenario to enhance and get the maximum performance from your ISP/router. Thanks Rohan — for pointing out this to me and I just thought my OCD shall make me blogging on this tweak. Let’s talk about MTU, which is nothing but a maximum amount of data packets that can be sent, perhaps not fragmented most of the times — thanks to Fiber optic connection in my opinion. Imagine the maximum amount of load that can be carried in a singular connection considering this as a payload of packets shooting to/fro from device to router all the time.

The below shown handy screenshot from a Windows machine, using a Terminal or a Power shell prompt shows a geeky way to achieve this.

Going further I’ve also shown my routers internal Dashboard page for clarity where the concerned value/size is hard-coded and restarting the router makes me go mesmerizing.

I have mentioned the latest firmware section of my router which shows deets and seems to be self-explanatory in a straightforward way.

PS: Anglehit blogs works/presents in a simplified manner where Images speak/shout out the most — as always keep sharing and you guys are amazing!

If you get any hiccups for experimenting the same, feel free to flare me down below on the comments section.
Happy Tweaking!
