RE: [squid-users] Unable to access a website through Suse/Squid.

The internet line is DSL, and does use a username/password (PPoE).
However, on the actual DSL router (provided by ISP) I don't see any MTU

I will have to look into ip tables. I can add static routes via the
interface card which are permanent, however doing it this way doesn't
give me any options for mss, mtu, etc.. All I can enter this way is
Source, Destination, Gateway.

Some things first.. you should figure out if the MTU is local or remote.
As it's mostly you having issues I would suspect it's local. In such
case you should have a lower mss on the default route to make TCP/IP
work better.

How are you connected to the Internet? ADSL with PPPoE, or some other
tunneling method which has a lover MTU than the default 1500?

How to set the routing is quite distribution dependent, and I am not
very familiar with SuSE. But on the good side you can use iptables to
acheive the same thing, or maybe rules in your router.
