This depends on your DSL Provider and the MTU they give you. Typically, 1420-1440 works well, but if it is a true bridge DSL then 1500 should be fine. If it is a PPPoE session it would make a difference as well.

the current situation is bridge mode and no ppoe session, ok will stick on 1500.

thanks gmsmstr
