well, I'am not a *bsd guru, so I cannot talk about these systems, but so far
default MTU value for ethernet interfaces
is 1500, and your bsd should have this setting on receiving interface -
check out with `ifconfig`. Also try to check whether you have ping to bsd
receiving interface with big icmp. Another thing - check out your
ipfilter/kernel settings - maybe you are droping fragmented packets?...
