Need optimum MTU setting.

    I remember this number being significant, but can't locate any notes I had on what to plug in there. I installed dd-wrt, and lost that setting. The result is slower than normal network transfers. I've been on the "live chat" with Linksys, but they have not been able to give me that number so far. My ISP is Wildblue satellite. The tech said to reduce the MTU by 8 and see how it works, but from the starting point of 1500, that's gonna be a lotta testing. Plus..I'm on a Mac, and don't know the Terminal commands to determing whether I've got the optimum setting.
    anyway...help would be appreciated...thanks
