Newbie Seeks Help with MTU Settings? (SUSE 10)

Hi there,

I've just installed SUSE 10 and have made a network connection direct to my wireless router using an ethernet cable.

I can view certain web pages (such as the BBC web page), but come unstuck when I attempt to register SUSE 10 on the Novell web site. I'm also unable to access https pages. :-(

Please advise what I need to do in order to configure my web access. Do I need to set up an ADSL router config, or can I just modify the MTU setting provided by ifconfig?

linux:/sbin # ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:01:80:52:15:F6
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::201:80ff:fe52:15f6/64 Scope:Link
RX packets:1738 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:1949 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:1187770 (1.1 Mb) TX bytes:345981 (337.8 Kb)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0x6000

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr: Mask:
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
RX packets:136 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:136 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:9560 (9.3 Kb) TX bytes:9560 (9.3 Kb)

linux:/sbin #

All suggestions gratefully received.

Many thanks, Rob

P.S. My ISP MTU setting on the router is 1400.

No problems. I found where I can modify the setting using YaST - Network Devices - Network Card. It was buried in there!
