Problems Internet Connection Sharing using PCLinuxOS and I-Burst

The Windows client machines will have limited connectivity,
i.e. MSN won't work, and some sites will time out (Usually HTTPS sites),
Some machines may even connect perfectly

Download TCP Optimizer from http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php
and set the MTU to that advised by your iburst service provider (I use 1321 or 1392) for every machine

(Alternatively there is a way to recompile the kernel so that this problem doesn't occur, but forgot Embarrassed )
