Giant Packets

We have noticed on our Brocade switches the ports our aps are plugged in that we see large numbers of packets dropped as Giant packets. This is happening on ap70s as well as ap105s. MTU is uniformly set to 1500. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Re: Giant Packets

Those are normally MTU discovery packets. Where do you have the MTU set at 1500? Please check the article here:
