Not being a real windows know-it-all, this is a guess, but I had to diddle
with registry settings yesterday to get Outlook to stop crashing on
Short version is that you can export a "piece" of the registry as a .reg
file. It seems you could go to the section where MTU is set and export
it, and then simply put a link to the file on your support site. Have the
user clicky-click on the link and answer "yes" to everything, and wham-o.
A similar example is here:

Can the Redback, on a 1483-bridged customer where the pvc is known do dhcp
based on the pvc the dhcp request comes from? What other trickery does it
do if you are dead-set against PPPoE but still need some authentication
and enforcement of addresses?
