    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?
