The max MTU for Ethernet is 1514 including the frame header, under
However, a significant number of Ethernet adapters support "jumbo
frames", especially Gigabit adapters. Using 9000-byte frames on my
Gigabit link dramatically improves file transfer speeds, so I do that :-)
Also, there are other network interfaces besides Ethernet that may
benefit from having their MTU set to a non-default size.
