MTU SETTINGS

HI there,

My question refers to mtu settings. Sometimes We need to lower mtu settings on routers to enable clients to veiw certin websites with an adsl connections or sdsl connections.

There is documentation to give the lowered mtu but what if any are the guidelines to go by? How do they come to those specifc numbers?

an example is on a basic linksys router we need to lower the mtu settings to 1492 most times.

Re: MTU SETTINGS

It really depends on how much overhead the encapsulated packet has. There is no hard and fast setting for this as it needs to be tweaked and adjusted to your needs.
