#10429 closed defect (fixed)

e1000 VLAN encapsulation not working

Reported by: fused Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 4.1.4
Keywords: e1000 vlan Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Linux


Probably because vlan tagging code is in the driver, but hardware (virtualbox) doesn't support it.

2.6.18-308.1.4.el5.fusedxen #1 SMP x86_64
modinfo e1000 |grep versio
version:        7.3.21-k4-3-NAPI
srcversion:     F036629BEA728AD54A09602

How to reproduce:

  1. Create/attach vlan with vconfig add eth0 1234
  2. ip ad add dev vlan1234
  3. tcpdump -n -e -i eth0 &
  4. ping
  5. fg ; # no 802.1q encapsulation seen in capture


  • select a different, older/dumber network card in VM prefs
