Honestly, I don't know... I think it was drilled into me somewhere that 1500
was the max...  I know Token Ring can be much higher (4464 I think).

I suppose if the device his WAN interface is talking to supports it, and if
the driver in FreeBSD does, it should work..

They are Ethernet sure but what does MTU have to do with Ethernet? MTU 
is a maximum size for an IP packet. 1500 is a default for TCP/IP on 
Ethernet devices. He may have some strange PPPOE setup that requires 
that MTU, I don't know but why should 1500 be the maximum?
