    Opinions on using jumbo frames in a gigabit network please...pros/cons. Also, will it break those PCs on the network that are wireless-g machines that will not be able to use jumbo frames.

    Thanks -

    i though you could toggle jumbo frames per port on the switch.

    all our boxes w/ gig-e over copper had jumbo.

    i don't know enough on the network end to give +/-

    Thanks crontab, this is a consumer grade router. I'd like to be able to afford an enterprise grade gigabit switch but I'm not there yet financially :)
