Hi all,

I am trying to use windows update from behind a Siemens Gigaset SE105
wireless router with no luck. I have Windows XP + SP2 installed and I get
the infamous error 0x80072EE2.

I have searched on the net for ways to handle this error and I've tried
everything I could find with no luck. I've added windowsupdate to the list
of trusted sites in Internet Explorer. I don't use any proxy servers. I've
even changed the MTU of the interface in my PC which is linked to the
router. And I don't know what to do next. So if anyone has the same router
model and has managed to make Windows Update work, please tell me. Or, if
you have any more ideas ...

Thanks and regards,
Nick

Error 0x80072EE2 is: ERROR_INTERNET_TIMEOUT - The request has timed out.

<snip of relevant part> I was getting the 0x80072EE2 message on a machine
this evening. I never had a problem with it.

I tried all of your suggestions to no avail. However, in a post from several
months ago, someone mentioned an MTU seating on a router. I had upgraded the
firmware on my home router several days ago and left the MTU set at the
default of 1500. Come to think of it, my Internet connection seemed a little
sluggish since I upgraded the firmware.

I reset the MTU to 1492, and voila! Windows Update works again.
