And there you have it. Initially my intention was just to write out a HOW-TO article on how to setup jumbo frames, VLAN and routing. But I feel a second follow up article is necessary to explain the motivations. We do not want you guys to blindly follow the steps and then have no idea if it’s beneficial or not.
The goal of Snakeoil is always this - music, your way.
We, the Snakeoil Squad, only serves as the facilitator. You as the audiophile have the complete freedom to investigate, and discover what sounds best to yourself. You get to call the shots, as such it is important to know the things you have just read. There is no universal solution. What works for me may not work for you. At the end of the day, the choice is yours to make.
If you are interested to explore this tweak, be sure to stay tuned for the next one in this series, where we’ll hopefully discuss the following:
- Enable Jumbo frames on switches
- Enable jumbo frames on PCs and other devices
- Setup VLANs
- Subnets and netmasks
- Setup access ports and trunks to router
- Inter-VLAN routing
A word of warning, this is not for the faint hearted!

Really nice introduction, thanks for sharing and i will follow the next steps for sure. It can be impossible to explain a setup in detail with variety of routers and switchs on the market, but give an example with the main guidelines will be an huge help for that! Happy new year Kith!
