Guess the subject says it all. I have an MN-700 that's
acting as a base station, and it connects to a linksys
router which hits the 'net through PPPOE. There are a
number of websites (microsoft.com, livejournal.com, alta-
vista, etc) that I can't hit on any of the wireless
clients. However, I can hit them fine on machines that
connect directly to the Linksys box.

Any idea what the issue could be? I'm thinking MTU, but
can't find any way to change it. Anything else I could
try?

Take the MN-700 out of router mode. Since you didn't post that it is in
access point mode I'll assume you didn't do that because a router behind
a router can cause that to happen.

Check out http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article04-107

The article shows which registry entry needs to be set to change MTU.

I haven't rebooted, so I haven't tried the fix yet, but the test shows that
the MTU on my system needs to be 1454.
