VirtualBox on Fedora with Windows 10 guest and tagged VLAN

TL;DR Shutoff “Priority enabled and VLAN enabled” in device manager, set it to just “Priority Enabled”

So I switched to VirtualBox 5.1 and so far, so good.  The one issue I was having was running a trunk with an untagged VLAN and a tagged VLAN for my guest. I doublechecked my tagging on the switch, I doublechecked my tagging in Fedora, but it never worked in Windows 10 for the tagged VLAN, only the untagged VLAN.  Finally, and I don’t understand why, but I went into the Windows 10 Network settings for the actual NIC in device manager and changed “Priority enabled and VLAN enabled” to just “Priority Enabled” and it works like a champ.  It appears that Windows ability with the Intel Pro card and the way VirtualBox will tag and untag packets for you is incompatible with the Windows 10 driver even though Windows isn’t managing the VLAN functionality.
