Get DR TCP from www.dslreports.com and you should be able to figure it out from there...very simple program to use. :)
also, take a look at here: http://www.tweaktown.com/document.php?dType=guide&dId=93
its not that simple increasing MTU, perhaps u must follow some more procedures. they r all in the article. good luck.

thanks a lot guys dr mtu made a huge impact on my uploads it was around 25-45 kbps now its over 100 and downloads it was on average 600-700 now its always over 1000 kbps i changed the value of my mtu's from 4 hundred and something (cant remember exactly) to 1500 using dr mtu and that did the trick again thanks alot
