MTU - Does make any difference on the game?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!!

I wonder if the MTU can make any difference on the game. I have the default value 1500 on XR500. Cn any one explain me if it is better to change that and how can I find the true MTU value?

I'm with N3CR0 on this one.  The short answer is that there is no optimal or best MTU value for gaming, as there is no real evidence that changing MTU improves either bandwidth or latency. Custom MTU settings do not appear to improve internet speeds or ping so I would recommend just leaving your MTU settings as default or automatic.

I have seen some MTU issues before concerning "packet fragmentation" or something, but that's usually more to do with using really old ethernet cables. The automatic/default settings should be fine. I certainly don't think making it any smaller would help.
