Hey, i dont know how mail lists work, as i dont get mails from the whole discussion. I make new Thread with all Details included.
I am running Windows 10 Enterprise, Windows 10 Home. My Router is Vodafone Station (Default Router). They might have remote access to fix problems, like all isps do.

When i do 1280 MTU, its fine. But its 100mbps maixmum with huge latency drops when i open some websites.

My Configurations:

PrivateKey = HIDDEN
Address =, 2a01::2/128
MTU = 1280

PublicKey = oyq9egDqiRTgxKbvWonrkFavvp9JcIw40EJoWmjRD3Y=
AllowedIPs =, ::/0
Endpoint =
PersistentKeepalive = 21

I did not change anything on Interface.
Ubuntu Server:
ip -a

     Resume: pmtu 1500

Endpoint is always ipv4. What is the problem here?  Now, im in Hotel Wifi and 1420 MTU works. But i didnt make something on Network, i dont understand what is wrong... My Server is Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS with kernel module.
