Yep, that's the default.

You could try increasing it actually. Depends on how much RAM you
have really. You need at least (bandwidth*latency) for TCP to be
able to make full use of a link, you need more to be able to
So, you could try bumping that middle value up a bit (RAM
permitting), which might help performance a bit if/when your sat-link
Google for TCP bandwidth-delay product for (vast amounts of)

1. link latency - not RTT as ping measures. But in your case, the RTT
figures you get will likely be dominated by sat-link latency, so your
ping times are probably equivalent to your sat-link latency.
