Re: correlation between the WAN MTU and security for the LAN.

said by Bink:

the optimal MTU for Verizon FiOS is 1492.

That means they are using PPPoE encapsulation which adds 8 bytes to each packet reducing the MTU to 1492.

I have always been on DHCP with Fios. I just can't use 1500 if I want to be able to receive streaming media for any length of time.
1492 seems to be holding good for me.
