    Super Jumbo Frames on Windows


    I have a PC connected directly to a DSP by Ethernet.

    Is it possible to get Windows (XP or 7) to send frames significantly larger than 9KB?
    If so, then how?

    If you want to actually send larger network packets. then things will be harder.
    All of the hardware will need to support the larger frames.
    Gigabit is usually limited at 9K so going beyond that will not work on a lot of hardware.

    If your networkcard and all intermediates support it, you can change the MTU size in the network card advanced properties under the "jumbo packet" setting.

    you need to be running gigabit and IPV6

    all your hardware will need to support it.
