    Not much you can do on the client side to change the line your ISP provides, if you're hitting some bandwidth limit it's likely their backbones/interconnects with other networks.

    Same difference, 1420-28=1392+28 ;)

    For the OS MTU, it is up to you. If you regularly use VPN, or some other tunnel that lowers it, you may also want to lower it to 1420 in the OS.

    You don't have to change anything, just see what gets through unfragmented. I imagine it would be 1420 - 28 bytes for headers.

    Yes, it is best to set your Windows MTU the same as the maximum external one, i.e. 1492 in your case. This theoretically reduces load on the router as it shouldn't have to repackage data frames.
