There is this peculiar problem I'm facing with MTU settings.
I'm using PPPoE with wifi enabled on Windows 8.1.
Couple of months back: ADSL MTU setting was promptly set to 1492 (8 bytes for PPPoE header discounted). All of a sudden, yahoo mail was not accessible.
When I tried
Code: ping -f -l 1464 mail.yahoo.comPacket needs to be fragmented but DF set. Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set.Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set.
Packet size of 1464 (MTU:1492 - 28 bytes for adjusting different header size) is big. So decided to change MTU.
I checked for various packet sizes; First ping was OK for packet size of 1452. So MTU can be set at 1480.
I changed the MTU to 1480 in modem setting and restarted.
When connected, I tried yahoo mail again - and again failed.
I checked the MTU which is set at 1480. I tried ping with packet size of 1452 and got surprise. I got "Packet needs fragment" again. The same size was working earlier.
I repeated the process. Now the MTU came to 1460. I set the MTU again in modem and restart and try yahoo mail again to get the same failure.
Again I ping with packet size 1432. Nope. Got "Needs fragment" error.
Changed MTU setting in Modem to 1400 - retry cycle - same issue. Changed MTU setting in model to 1300 - retry - same issue.
Then I came across setting MTU for interfaces in PC. So reverted the MTU to 1492 in modem.
Set the PC interface MTU as below. I set it for WiFi interface as I was using wireless Internet access.
Code: netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Wi-Fi" mtu=1460 store=persistent
This solved the problem.
Today I couldn't access yahoo mail. Checked the MTU setting for PC wifi interface. It has been reverted to 1500 (default). May be some windows update did that.
I set it back to 1460. Tried to access yahoo mail. Still not accessible.
Checked the ping with size of 1432 (for MTU 1460). Got "Needs fragment" error. Checked ping with packet size 1400 - OK - change interface MTU to 1420 - Still couldn't access yahoo. Checked ping with pkt size 1400 - now not OK. Checked ping pkt size 1360 - OK - Change interface MTU to 1300 - still couldn't access yahoo mail. Checked ping pkt size of 1360 - now not OK.
This seems to be vicious cycle. What is happening?
So, yahoo web mail's giving me grief on both this Windows 8 machine and my vista machine, which I'd done a fresh zero out and software reload on, neither machine will load yahoo messages, keeps spitting up error code 45s...
I saw they had a yahoo for windows 8 app available, lets try that! no such luck, yahoo mail Windows 8 app is doing the EXACT same thing.. sans the error code 45s.. Getting grief from their yahoo email?
The snapshot below is what it HAD been tossing up nonstop before the error 45s started saying hi.. as you can see..I had alot of mail tabs open on the mail screen..they were all spitting up errors.
I just bought a new laptop with windows 8 on and I m a bit lost....
I installed the yahoo messenger for windows 8 and I noticed that everytime I open a chat window with my contacts, the video call and call button are disabled and it says something like the other person doesn t have the right settings to make a video call? I can still do video calls on yahoo. I also got skype but yahoo for windows 8 seems a bit more similar to the messenger for windows 7..
I am running Windows 8 and use Yahoo mail. Is there anyway to completely stop all those advertisements from reaching my email address without having to pay for software? I am using Avast, SpyHunter, CCleanner to protect my computer and routinely backing up my hard drive. I see Yahoo Mail offers something to block all their ads, but what a shock, I would have to pay them for a subscription.
I have yahoo messenger 184.108.40.206 in Windows 8 but when i type smileys in chatbox I can see them but when send them there is nothinf to see.take a look at this :
I did the solutions below but nothing work:
1- Uninstall and install an old version 2- I enabled emotions in messenger-->preference-->messages 3- In inter explorer i checked all of the items in internet option-->advanced--->multimedia 4- I installed the latest version of flash player for windows and IE and firefox
Yesterday I had to download WinRAR to be able to open up some files and during the setup it only asked me once if I wanted to download a toolbar. I said no... but after I closed the setup and opened Internet Explorer, this "Internet Search" tool bar is here and I can't remove it! It's annoying because I can't click a link that opens up a new tab but instead of going to the link it goes to this "Internet Search".... I tried removing it from my Add-Ons but that didn't seem to work either.
I just have a question about the toolbar and the metro menu, Is there away to get rid of both and just have a desktop with out the toolbar, I hop you can understand what I'm saying.Why Im doing this is because Im a computer programmer and some of my projects has to be full screen and when i test it the toolbar is still there thats why I want to hide or not show the toolbar, I am new to windows 8 but 7 and vista and xp-98,95. I know how that works 8 is kind of the same but, with a lot of new stuff.
I hardly ever turn off my computer, I just put it to sleep. But once a week I turn it off and I did last night. When I turned it on this a.m. My Internet Explorer had AVG secure toolbar and search. I do not want it, I did not ask for it and I cannot remove it.
There should be a law against people putting stuff on your computer that you can't remove. I called Microsoft and they told me I had to pay to get rid of it. I will not, nor can I pay. I'm on Social Security. This is BS.
How to get rid of it. And where did my Microsoft Security Essentials go? Now it's missing from my computer
I have searched all the keywords I can think of & I can't seem to find this problem addressed anywhere. The type on my address toolbar in the taskbar is very faded. Almost like it's grayed out, but not quite. I had it do this when I first installed Win 8.1, messed with some settings, but none that seemed to make any sense & it went away. Now it's back & I haven't done any setting changes!
How to get rid yourself of the touch screen keyboard symbol in the bottom toolbar have tried several ideas but after restart this still appears, my reason for wanting to rid myself of this is I don`t have a touch screen so is of no use
Although I don't really miss the Classical start Menu any more It's quite useful to have a quick popup of some programs you use from time to time that don't always warrant being either pinned to the desktop or the taskbar also with SUB MENUS where appropriate -- All the tools like WIN-X editor that I've seen don't allow sub menuing or need fixed location toolbars or folders so here's an EASY way to do it - although it's manual so perhaps knowlegable people with some programming skills who know some scripting could easily automate the process.
An Easy way to do this actually exists in WINDOWS itself by the use of a bit of trickery and Custom toolbars -- you don't NEED any Registry hacks etc. Also you can save your created toolbar so you don't need to re-create it or go through the whole process again if you re-install Windows again either.
Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder - Windows 7 Forums Toolbars - How to Use in Windows 7 and Vista - Windows 7 Forums
1) Create a Folder anywhere on your system say on Vol D: and call it My Progs.
2) Create a Custom toolbar (right mouse click on bottom taskbar==>toolbars==>new toolbar
3) Select the folder location to the one you've made D:My Progs.
Now the trick is to POPULATE this folder correctly.
For Items that don't have any sub menus - for example on my system I'll take Winamp.You need to find the FILE LOCATION - easy way to do this is to search in the applications and then RIGHT MOUSE CLICK on the .exe file and then SEND TO DESKTOP (create Short cut).
Now on the DESKTOP RIGHT MOUSE CLICK on the icon and choose COPY.
Go to your folder D:My Progs, chose Paste Short cut. Then delete the desktop icon if you don't want it on your desktop.
Now if you want SUB levels - create a Folder in the My Progs folder and then simply copy the procedure above.
You can do this for as many levels as you want.
For the TOP level items say Office Create a Folder Microsoft Office. As an example I've also added one Classic Games.
If the link is ALREADY a short cut then just past direct into the My Prog folder - you don't need to create a short cut first.
Finally re-arrange it so it appears on the screen at the most convenient place for you.
"Seemples" -- Bye Bye Startisback or any of those 3rd party apps -- I think my method is far more flexible and you can have ANY number of toolbars too.
I've shown two screen shots here with a small test toolbar - Office and Classic Games have lower levels and the other one is the example My Dir containing ONLY short cuts and folders.
The loss of the Classic Shell toolbar in Windows Explorer is still puzzling me.
I've been through all the Classic Shell options (I think!) and messed around with Windows Explorer, but after installing 8.1 the toolbar seems to have disappeared.
I used to have all the View buttons pinned to the bar and I'm really missing it. I know they can be put in the Quick Access Bar, but it's not as usable/fast as the Classic Shell version (the change as hovering I also find very annoying).
EDIT: Just realise I hadn't checked the version I was using. It's 4.0.4 and re-checking the developers site I've now realised that they're up to 4.0.6 ------ Could this be the issue?
I seem to remember that 4.0.6 was not yet stable, or have I dreamt that - I think I probably have
What I am asking for is a request to manually size the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar. I do not want a suggestion that states an alternative way for viewing my icons (for example, pinning programs or what-not).
I am asking to see if there is a registry tweak that manually sets the size of the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar (refer to the image). They are a bit small, and want to slightly increase their sizes.
I have started to use NetSpeedMonitor to monitor network speed and bandwidth usage and when it is set to start at boot, it asks to enable its toolbar on a taskbar. Obviously I would prefer, if I would not have to confirm it at every startup.
I currently have it set like this and I wonder, if there is a command like: "/allow":
I just purchased a laptop with Windows 8 installed on it. I have one problem. I know if you hit one of the corners of the screen the right toolbar becomes activated and is displayed. My problem is that it tends to be displayed when I move the cursor in the middle of the screen. When it is displayed I have to deactivate it in order to continue what I was doing. I do not mind the toolbar if it is not so sensitive.
