Jumbo frames on 1gig/100mb mixed network?

Most of my equipment runs at 1gbit/sec and can support jumbo frames. I do
have a laptop that only does 100mbit/sec, as does my internet cable modem.

If I change my gigabit PC's to use jumbo frames what will happen to the
connection to my laptop or cable modem?

  All the equipment that can run at 1000Mbps, will auto
negotiate.  That includes the OS Drivers/software, as well.
So, if your laptop can't handle Jumbo Packets or gigabit
speeds the connection to that laptop will be set to the highest
standard speed that it can handle.   The same for your cable
modem, that could be at 10Mbps, by the way.
