Large Receive Offload (LRO), Jumbo Frames, Receive Traffic Hash (RTH),
VLAN, Promiscuous mode and Multi function mode.
driver supports the following function modes:
.Cd SF1_VP17 - 1 function with 17 VPATHs
.Cd MF8_VP2 - 8 functions with 2 VPATHs per function
.Cd MF2_VP8 - 2 functions, 8 Paths/Function

For general information and support, please visit the Neterion support page
Support for Jumbo Frames is provided via the interface MTU setting.
Selecting an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the
utility configures the adapter to transmit and receive Jumbo Frames.
X3100 adapters support Jumbo Frames up to 9600 bytes.
For Jumbo Frames, the driver will try to allocate physically contiguous buffers.
Failures to do so may degrade the performance.
To resolve such problems, please visit
where additional information and a kernel patch can be found.
