I am looking for a PCI Ethernet adapter which supports jumbo frames. The card I have now - Trendnet TEG_PCITXR - says it supports jumbo frames but it turns out the MTU is 7200 bytes. Yeah this is more than 1500, but it seems like a bit of a scam to me.

Since it is nearly impossible to find these specs on product info pages, I was hoping someone could recommend a network card that is proven to support 9000 (or greater) MTU.

Some more info, I am running Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-19

Thanks!
