Get a program called MTUspeed. If you are using the TC to remote connect
to your LAN then the larger MTU setting will gain better performance. If
you are using the remote access to the Internet then the smaller setting
will most likely give you better results. I many hundreds of users that
use the optimum setting in MTU Speed (576 I think) and they report it
improved their ability some 40%.
