      Dlink 2640s unable to access Yahoo or Hotmail

      Hi

      I have a DLink 2640s router and am unable to access Hotmail or Yahoo via PC or iphone. I have accessed the router to try to change my MTU rate but the section is greyed out. Every other section is available apart from the MTU rate. I believe changing the MTU will solve the issues i am facing. Or if not does anyone have a solution. This problem only started last week.

      Recently there have been a few some people in exchanges around the country who have been unable to access specific web sites, although Hotmail & Yahoo hadn't been mentioned so far. It might help if you could post you telephone exchange code or information. If you don't know this, please take a look at SamKnows.

      As for changing the MTU, the Sky routers have this feature locked out as it is pre-set for Sky and you do not need to change it.

      It may not be the reason, but if you want to change the MTU, change it on your PC, this over-rides the router setting. The easiest way to do this is to use DrTCP from the link below. I have no idea how you would do this on the iPhone, but no doubt it is online somewhere.
