The interface to my cable modem connection to shaw.ca
here on Pender Island has MTU = 576 whereas I would
have expected to find MTU = 1500.
joule:/home/peter# ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:...:1c
inet addr:24.108...84 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:576 Metric:1
Can anyone explain this MTU? Can anyone tell me what
MTU they have for a Shaw connection elsewhere? Is 576
company policy or an erroneous configuration on a router?
Thanks, ... Peter E.
