Someone told me it disables something like: drop oversized frames. But
anyway I was wondering if this could be user changable, since for example
I use 3 eepro100 and only one uses vlan 802.1q, and since I connect the
others on WANs, I would like the card to still discard the "oversized
frames" could this be possible?
