Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but you want to look at the MTU for your

However, you'll probably see little if any difference and you may effect
performance for not only you, but your router(s) and that in turn would
effect your listeners.  Unless you have control over the routers and know
what type of topology the upstream connect runs (FDDI, ATM, etc) then
there is really no point in playing with the packet size.  Most OS's by
default are already using optimized packet sizes.
