netsh interface ipv4 show subinterfaces

netsh interface ipv6 show subinterfaces

netsh winsock reset


  1. What is the best MTU so that people don't believe everything they hear? Thanks John!

  2. Changing mtu won’t have a noticeable effect on gaming.. it’s best to leave it on Auto

  3. What MTU number is best to input into network setup on PS4?

  4. Is there anyway to lower Xbox latency without port forwarding? I don’t have access to my router settings currently .. any help would be greatly appreciated

  5. HI GC. I'm a new subscriber trying to his way in a world full of tech. You did a good job on the video and it helped me out. I've been trying anything possible to increase my download speed when using my VPN and changing the MTU is one of the things suggested. Of course I didn't know how to do this so I started watching videos. So far I haven't been able to make much headway. Choosing the right sever and deciding whether to use UDP OR TCP are the only changes that really seem to help. Sometimes I swear my head in going to explode but I regroup and try again.

  6. I had to click on the video to show love… I know MTU has nothing to do with online gaming. I was apart of that crowd thinking lowering mtu will help with call of duty, but it doesnt.

  7. The speed of my internet should be 20 or50Mbps? But it looks2Mbps! Why

  8. But i use the g4 satellite cuz i live in the wood and he recommend me to use 1400.why?

  9. i like ur vids they are interesting i been looking for content like this forever

  10. Hi, I've been watching your videos for a while, these are very great and helpful videos. I hope I can get an answer to this because I have been trying to solve connection issues with GTA Online but for a few months I have found no result. I already tried many things: Port Forwarding, DMZ, UPnP and nothing has worked. I even contacted Rockstar Games but they can't seem to give me an answer. My internet device is a Netgear Modem/Router (it does both functions). My speeds are on average: 15 Mbps Download, 2.5 Mbps Upload, my NAT on the Xbox One console is open and I have 0% packet loss. All my other games run perfectly fine. Is there any type of information you can give me that will solve my issue? I would be very thankful.

  11. My internet speed is 200 megabytes and upload 15 megabytes i did the google dns then mtu for where i live which is in mckinney tx. the connection is great but it seems just with the game fortnite i just fucked over. I don’t know that the problem is . I play it both in pc and ps4. Which i have a ps4 pro . But i really don’t know whats wrong and why I can’t get a good connection of ps4 it just fucking pissing me off . Only for fortnite though , other games like destiny black ops3 you know what ever i get no lag or drop in ping at all . I want to know if it is just epic games servers that can’t handle so many people or its just me .
