802.11 spec allows for max size of IP frame to be 2304 bytes before encryption.   If you are going to use jumbo frames above 1500 bytes, suggest you keep it below 2304 for easy compatibility with Wi-Fi.   Larger frames will get fragmented, which adds overhead.

According to ZF-10443, Ruckus will support jumbo frames on R710 APs in version 9.9.2 maintenance release.

R710 AP can bridge frame size up to 1624 between Eth0 and Wlan0, and will support the AP CLI command "set mtu eth0 2290".
