Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've been having a very weird connection issue that I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on.
One evening getting home from work and pulling my chair up to my desk I discovered that I couldn't access the internet. The next morning with it still down I called Qwest and during the conversation we found out that I could access google and other google sites such as youtube, but nothing else. Surprisingly removing my router from my network and plugging my switch directly into the modem fixed the problem. So then I ordered a new router thinking that would be that.
However with the new router, both wired and both on the latest firmware and both from different companies, I have the same problem. After some more Googling I discovered that this is a surprisingly common problem and that changing the MTU on my computer from 1500 to 1492 solves the problem. What could cause the internet access for the entire network to suddenly need a different MTU?
Is there anything I can do besides switching to Comcast? I don't want to have to worry about the MTU of all the devices on my network. Especially after 3 years of internet access without any problems like this. And just to be clear this problem occurred simultaneously on all the computers on my network and with two different routers.
I appreciate any information you can offer. Thanks.
