10.3: MTU fixes for Ethernet and Airport connections
Authored by: sjoerd on Nov 24, '03 01:11:06PM
The normal maximum packet length is 1500. The PPPoE header occupies 6+2 bytes, leaving only 1492. Here are some links: http://www.allaboutjake.com/network/linksys/mtu.html

This last one is interesting - it suggests that a setting of 1454 is better than 1492.

Sorry- I can't give you that last link correctly due to some *!@$#$ filter. Instead of *censored* type the following without the dot: t.wat

[robg adds: Hmm, hadn't noticed that Geeklog had "twat" in its censored list before. I've edited the link directly in the database; it should work when clicked now...sorry for the trouble!]
