Jim,

>FYI, the MTU for a PC is somewhere in the registry.

For dial-up adapters, that was true of Win95.  In Win98, you can get
to it without RegEdit or the third-party tools.  Use Control Panel
Network applet, and display the properties of the dial-up adapter.  On
the Advanced tab, you can set the IP Packet size to Large, Medium,
Small or Automatic.  With Win98, even the Automatic does a pretty good
job.

For my TR adapters, the Advanced tab lets me explicitly specify the
sizes of the buffers.

Of course, in both cases it is just an interface to the entries stored
in the registry.  And the settings for LAN cards are independent of
the settings for dial-up adapters, so you can tweak each as needed.

Doug
