Problem with packet size over a bridge

Hello, I very new to FreeBSD, and I've tried and tried to search for the
answer to my problem, but can't seem to find it.

We recently bought FreeBSD 5.0 to setup a computer to do bridging and
dummynet.  I finally got the computer setup with bridging...and used all of
the "standard" setup that Luigi Rizzo have put in his documentation for

The problem I'm having is that I can not ping to computers over the bridge
with packets larger than 256.  Like I said, I've looked pretty hard to try
and find any thing that will adjust the default bridging packet size.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
