Well, that depends on how many retries are needed. If a low number then
you're ahead with large frames. The history of this sort of thing is
interesting. Ethernet went with smaller frames than token ring, due to
packet loss caused by collisions. ...
Which is non-existent on switched networks these days, so
I wonder why they don't increase those frames on the internet. Seems like it would really benefit streaming media and
downloads -- the big traffic users on the net. My internet
is still running @ 1500 MTU's. My local networks could probably
benefit with, at least 128K-256K sizes.
