:) I need some clarification on fragmentation with different wireless vendors. I'm specifically looking for recommendations for fragmentation for the following vendors:
Cisco (Autonomous & Centralized)
Are there different fragmentation settings for each vendor?
Is there any RFC's referring to this topic?
Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated.....
Fragmentation should be turned off for all vendors unless there is a specific reason (e.g. RF interference, hidden node, etc) that necessitates its use. When in use, the fragmentation threshold isn't based on vendor, it's based on maximizing throughput. Start at about 150 bytes, and move up and down until throughput peaks for file transfers. A good way to test this is with a big FTP file transfer.
