Hello Markus, Fragmentation has nothing to do with ICS, it is IP issue and you cannot influence it. I think if you send packets smaller than MTU then chance is lower that you get fragmentation. Also I think on a busy network chance is higher. But what is the problem? Wy take the risk? Just concatenate received packeds in case you don't have the complete one.
