Finding the Correct MTU for your Internet Connection
You might have heard To find the correct MTU for your configuration you must run a simple DOS Ping test. You will simply send out ping requests and progressively lower your packet size until the packet no longer needs to be fragmented. Please reference the following steps:
The command for this ping test is: ping www.jaredheinrichs.com -f -l xxxx
- You can use any well known, pingable domain like ping www.jaredheinrichsphotography.com -f -l xxxx
- There is a single space between each command.
- “-l” is a lower case letter L, not the number one
- The last four numbers are the test packet size.
