P.S. I guess you have been trying to help the poster who mis-posted in here earlier?


Yes, a comment on his question is what made me look at the Base32 Wikipedia article.

A few weeks ago I saw a question over on reddit where a user was stating that when they used the PiHole Linux distribution as the DHCP client their internet speeds dropped by 25%. Another user mocked him and said it was impossible and received over 60 upvotes. Another 30-40 other reddit users joined in the mockery making fun of the user for believing it was being caused by the PiHole DHCP client.

But because I recently wrote a DHCP client/server I immediately recognized the problem in his logs. DHCP options 24 through 26 are MTU related and has a significant effect on the link speed. Indeed the dhcp client used in PiHole is one of the only dhcp packages that utilized option 24. Most other dhcp clients ignore the MTU option.

My response was buried under 40-50 users mocking the poor guy.

A layperson probably has a hard time finding accurate information. I've noticed that even moderators and site administrators don't seem to recognize true and correct statements from subject-matter experts.

Best Wishes,
