Hi All, I have a hardware board which sends Jumbo packets of around 8192 byte sized packet.My laptop is of following configuration Windows-7 64-Bit Operating System. Wireshark version Version 1.8.0 (SVN Rev 43431 from /trunk-1.8)
I followed below steps to change the MTU Size to 9216 bytes.
Open a command line window as an Administrator (ie. right click on All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt and select Run as administrator) ... Type the command netsh and wait for prompt Type the command interface and wait for prompt Type the command ipv4 and wait for prompt Type the command set subinterface "Local Area Connection" mtu=xxxx store=persistent
Also, in the NIC Interface card, there is JUMBO Packets Option [DISABLED or 4088 bytes], instead of DISABLED (which was default), i set it to 4088 bytes. There was no other option apart from DISABLE/4088 bytes.
Kindly help as what is to be done further to see wireshark capture the packet.

Hi Rakki, Thanks for suggestion. I didn't try that [4088 bytes]. But after i restarted my laptop, it worked fine [i was able to capture 8192 bytes packet on wireshark].
Thanks V Reddy
