When I run mtu-test I get different values from time to time. Is this normal? What would be a safe mtu value if everytime you run a test you get between 1200 and 1297

Hi Mark,

This isn't unusual. For the average Internet connection, an MTU of around 1280 should be fine, but you may have to go lower in your case. If the minimum you see is 1200, this is MTU you should probably set, though if you are not noticing problems with your connection, I'd recommend not changing anything.
