``If your ISP has an FE crossover to Bell Canada, the optimal MTU is 1448.
This is because of all the tunnelling and packet overhead that's created
-- anything greater than 1448 (actually, it's 1452, but that's on on the
8-byte boundary) will cause some sort of fragmentation in the packet between
you and your ISP.''

If anything you should DISABLE LQR. The Juniper ERX routers being used by
Bell Canada do not support LQR.
