    Hello there,

    my local ISP offers an upgrade to 100mbit vDSL internet access via fiber-optic network. Prior to the technician hooking up the modem the call center talked about me having to manually change some settings in OS X.
    I currently run 10.6.6 and was under the impression that such manual tweaks were long gone since the days of 10.4!?

    I know that such tinkering with tcp, mtu and such was done under xp back in the days.

    Is it still necessary?

    Thank you, cxc

    Try the speed without tweaks to see. If you're getting close to 100Mb/s, then there is no need to tweak anything.

    Assuming that network negotiation is handled by DHCP and that the equipment that they use is stander ethernet, then all of the needed settings should be automatic. This should also be the case on Windows and linux... and every other modern OS out there, so I am guessing that the call center has no idea what they are talking about.
