Can not access or browse some websites using Dlink DIR 600L- Here is the solution

Recently I have faced a somewhat illogical problem with my newly purchased Dlink DIR 600L wireless router. It was that I can not access some websites with this router. At first I thought I got some issues with my dns settings then found out it was all ok next i went for host configuration and it was also ok, then the problem was definitely with my router but every configuration in that was very very ok. I wasted much time thinking about that then i thought it was the ISP who is creating the problem and I went to my friends home and set it up still the problem was on. Now it is definitely with the router and yes it was very easy fix.
As PPPoE by default use the MTU of 1492, I just changed it to 1400 and everything got OK .
if you do not know where to change
login to router admin panel by going to url, give user name and password. go to advanced settings.
Now go to SETUP tab and then Internet Connection and under the PPPOE find MTU and change it to 1400

Get back close maximize and minimize button on the right side in ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10

From ubuntu 10.04 metacity is besing used as GTK2 default window manager. On that the close maximize and minimize button is on the left side of the title bar which seems very hard to catch at the first time, we all feel hard then. So it is the best practice to make it as it was before on the right side . :D
now lets make it as it was with a few steps.

Step 1:

Press Alt and F2 button of ur keyboard at a time. A box will appear on that box just type
" gconf-editor " [except the "" ] and hit ur enter button or press Run button of that box.

Step 2:
# Then u will get another box. From that box at the left side select apps and expand it by clicking the downward arrow sign.
# Next expand the metacity and then select general
# Now look at right side and find button_layout  and double click on it.
And on the value field just change it as I say ..
First put " : " this colon sign then minimize,maximize,close [with comma sign] or the order u want. and press enter button on ur keyboard.

You are done....

You got the buttons on the right side..
