BT Wholesale have developed an MTU ADSL performance tweaker that will enable any customers who use Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP and NT systems to easily modify the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) to 1458 bytes on the ADSL interface whether it's via a USB modem or an Ethernet Network Interface Card. Early results have shown that if customers utilise the tool it results in improved network performance for them.
ZenADSL MTU ADSL performance tweaker I can recommend This . This is a must if you have a Network ! Fragmentation is the result of IP packets, larger than the 1500 byte maximum attempting to the pass across the network. The MTU tool enables users of Microsoft Windows based operating systems, to improve their network performance. By modifying the MTU to a setting suitable for the network, the MTU can be lowered to stop fragmentation, thereby improving the perceived performance of the network. This setting is nominally 1458 bytes. The change is made to the ADSL interface whether it's via a USB modem or an Ethernet Network Interface Card. Test your speed on this site . fourth box on left (click speed test) Then install MTU and see the increase in speed You have to reboot ! for non bt customers !
Hmm - just come back after a couple of weeks away - these seem to have taken a right kicking, and have been well and truly broken down out of their previous range. Do you know if there is a specific reason for MTU doing this, or a general following down of the market?
I do indeed follow ITs in some detail, particularly from the short-term relative discount point of view. Know nothing at all about charts, so am very happy to exchange news and views with someone of your knowledge. Don't hold any smaller companies ITs at the mo but always scan through every IT in every sector every week to catch any anomalous discounts. Jupiter Primadona, EFS and DRE are three of my current favourites, however have yet to act on any of them. I'll keep an eye on MTU for a while now to see how the chart performs. The up/down range certainly shows a trading range so I guess there's currently no real reason to assume it won't continue to trade within it. These days, a 15% gain in 2-3 mths is not to be sniffed at...
I've not really thought through the discount to NAV issue, which is one reason why I'm a little wary. My interest in MTU came about purely from spotting the chart a couple of months ago - on a chart basis, EFS seems to have just pulled up (slightly) from a death spiral, which doesn't greatly encourage me - been in enough death spirals recently to last me a lifetime. Do you follow Inv Trusts generally, or have a specific interest in these ones? ITs are an area I've looked at briefly a couple of times, and am getting interested again, mainly from a charts viewpoint, at the moment.
MTU is currently trading at a discount of c. 15.8% which is less than its year average of 17.25%, so as purely a discount-to-NAV bet, not so good. Highest recent discount was c. 11.5%, so one could argue that a return to favour for smaller cos could shorten the discount a little from here. In this sector, I'd consider Edinburgh Smaller from a discount relative to 1yr av discount.
Has anyone been watching these? They seem to be thoroughly locked into a trading range of about 177 - 206, and are about to hit the bottom of that range, which will complete 4 cycles up/down the range. Here's the chart: Looks like an easy 15-16%, provided it does it again. Caveats: appears to be pretty thinly trades, and I'm not sure whether the price is being set by trades in the market, or by proportion of NAV. If the latter, it might well fall straight through the support line. On balance, looks a reasonable bet - downside looks to be next support level around 160, against rise to 206, which gives 2:3 risk:reward. Any thoughts?
