We recently installed our building with wireless LAN to provide Internet to our clients and users. For the accesss point (AP) we're using the brand MERU AP100 and the other devices are: PoE switch is MNO M24PWR and Hitachi GS3000 and the AP Controller is Meru 1100 (japan brands I guess).
We can surf the Internet and do online chats except for Hotmail and Yahoo mail messaging. It goes "Page cannot be displayed" after a few minutes of waiting. I read in one of the forums here that I can change the MTU# of my PC and it worked fine after changing to 1358 (using Dr. TCP utility). My worry is, it is not convenient for our clients to do something on their PCs/notebooks and change their MTU# setup.
So here are my questions:
1. What is the default MTU# for Windows XPs, Win2K or Win 98?
2. Which of the devices given above can be setup in such a way that on the users' side, we no longer have to change the MTU#? Instead, change this device's MTU# (is there such?) to match the default MTU# of most PCs.
3. If its either the Controller or the switch, may I have the step-by-step procedure please.
Our vendor/engineers who installed this WLAN doesnt seem to know how to tweak this(I was even the one who told them about this MTU changing). Apparently this is their first venture for a wireless LAN so would really appreciate the BIG help from all of you!
May thanks in advance!
