Question about Edimax BR-6104K Router (br6104k)
Hello - MTU stands for Maximum Transmission Unit which is a measure of the size of a data "chunk" that can be sent over a network at a time. For example, if you are connected to the Internet using Ethernet the standard MTU is 1500 bytes while being connected over a WiFi connection would mean your using an MTU of 2272 bytes while an old fashioned modem would send 576 bytes at a time.
The MTU usually refers to the TCP/IP protocol which was developed for and is the networking standard for the Internet. MTU has standards for different networking devices, Ethernet, Modems, etc. but they can be modified for the purpose for special uses to achieve greater efficiency.
To read more about MTU there is a more complete description of it at the Wikipedia entry HERE.

MTU stands for Maximum Transmission Units. In layman's terms, it is how much data you send/receive in one burst. Mostly newbies think that if you set it higher, you'll send more information in each packet making it faster. It may be true but those packets need to travel to and fro to other networks, if set to 1500 (or smaller) and because the packets are too big, the router will divide them so can fit on the new network and actually slowing the process of sending/receiving data.
I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!
