Not sure what you mean by Data Rate, but if you mean the bandwidth - this is the links bandwidth.

MTU - Maximum Transmission Unit: This is the largest for a packet. If your packet is larger than this, it will be split into 2 or more packets (or datagrams).

As far as the Data Link Layer, you can get a pretty good explanation on this under the Networking Menu at Networking/The OSI Model/OSI Layer 2.

Anything problems give us a shout.
