Frame size is the maximum amount of the data that can be sent out on
the network in one packet. The maximum frame size for Ethernet is fixed
at approximately 1500 bytes of data. On networks such as Token-Ring,
different frame sizes can be used.
Larger frame sizes generally increase
network performance, although not all systems support larger frame sizes.
If you are using a network adapter that supports configurable frame
sizes, you may want to experiment with larger sizes in your network.
