I added this code to my /etc/rc.config.d/firewall2-custom.rc.config

fw_custom_before_denyall() {
for i in "eth0" "eth1" ; do
ifconfig $i mtu 1350

Of course the "eth0" "eth1" should be replaced with the relevant info for
your network setup.

Maybe it's not the correct place to put it, but it works for me.
