The MTU setting of 1500 is optimal for that connection from what I read and according to tweak tests and I was just clarifying that the pc in question was not a laptop I am aware that MTU is TCP related and I agree sometimes there are funny things that happen with that, based on other tests I have done with other devices kind of rules out MTU it seems to be more a duplexing issue or driver issue I think.

Both myself and the cable guy have hooked a laptop to the cable modem all beit they are windows laptops with the same settings and speed tests were normal.
