    I have talktalk, and my internet is unusable unless I've lowered the mtu to 1458 or 1432 or something like that. My router doesn't support it, so I've had to do it on each device using it manually (boooo). Worked out how to do it on the PC and netbook, but is it even possible on my desire?

    :(

    Or should I go and buy a new router that DOES allow me to change it (in which case, any recommendations?)?

    You definitely should get a new router. If eveything you coennct to it needs to be changed (and not everything can be), its pretty pointless.

    Some ISPs tunnel your traffic and you MUST set the MTU down. You can update your router all you want, if your ISP or you need to tunnel, you have to modify the MTU. I need an MTU of 1462, the default is 1500. It causes problems.
