EVE Online and the EVE logo. Oct 25, 2018 This is a ‘Magpie’ MTU though, those things have a much higher sensor strength than the regular version and are much harder to probe down. You’ll want to use a ship with bonus to scanning (Astero is a good pick, since its bonus doesn’t depend on skills) with the right modules (Sisters’ probe launcher, maybe some Astrometrics modules.

The maximum transmission unit (MTU) feature on your router allows you to determine the biggest data size permitted on your connection.
Generally, if your MTU value is too big for the connection, your computer/device will experience packet loss or drop of Internet connection.
When to adjust MTU Values?
When you’re having network performance issues such as the VPN connection is being timed out.
Finding the correct MTU Values
You can get the correct MTU values for your connection by simply sending out ping request and progressively lower down your packet size until it no longer needs to be fragmented.
To do this, please follow the steps below:
Press and hold the WinKey and R button to launch the Run window.
Type cmd into the box and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter on your keyboard to run the command as an administrator.
At the Command Prompt window, type in the command below followed by the Enter key on your keyboard.
ping www.google.com -f -l 1500
You will now see your packets needs to be fragmented. Drop the packet size down by 10 to 20 bytes and test again.
ping www.google.com -f -l 1480
As you can see from the test above, our packets still need to be fragmented. If you’re getting the same results, drop the packet size down more and do the further test until you reach a packet size that does not fragment.
Once you’ve reached the packet size which does not fragment, increase the packet size in small increments and test again until you reach the biggest packet size possible that doesn’t fragment.
Now that you have the biggest packet size from the ping test, you will need to add 28 bytes. Please note that 20 bytes are added for the IP header and 8 bytes are allocated for the ICMP Echo Request Header. Therefore, you must add 28 to your results from the ping test.
Mtu Eve Online Game
- 1460 Max packet size from the Ping Test.
- 28 bytes – IP header and ICMP headers.
- 1460 + 28 = 1488 is the optimum MTU Setting.
