MTU size confusion...

hdsk.23

~ Harshdeep ~
Hello Everybody,
I am using BSNL isp with 4Mbps connection, Netgear DGN1000 ADSL2+ router. By default, its MTU size is 1492. If router is set to 1492, i am unable to open some websites. I have read some commands on internet, that how to calculate best MTU size. But, here is the problem, I am using Macbook pro 13'', and i run that command on mac os x lion, it get fragmented on 1340, but if i run on windows 7, that value gives error need to be fragmented?????

Please help, I have seen the other cheap Chinese routers does not have to bother about MTU size, just plug and play!
Really suffering from MTU size from last 6 months :( Even netgear tech. support people does not know exact information about it, which only leaves me with embarrassment why i purchased US based product!
