A script to determine Maximum Transmission Unit
Authored by: osxpounder on Feb 08, '06 11:35:17PM

My home Mac connects via a wireless adapter, so I don't get that configuration panel you described -- I don't see any way to adjust the MTU size for my Mac using "Airport" [actually, I think it's a Belkin wireless card].

Since I have a slow ADSL connection, I kinda wanted to try changing my MTU to 1484 [this script reports "at least 1491" as my current MTU] to see if that would bring any noticeable speed increase.

A script to determine Maximum Transmission Unit

For a script to set the MTU see this hint, or the original script on my blog.

It seems however, that the Airport interface has acquired a new Ethernet tab in the Advanced settings in Leopard (certainly on my MacBook running 10.5.3), and you can change the MTU in there for airport interfaces.
