Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] 12 bytes before the IP header

Hello people,

Anyone have tips on how you loose a few bytes? I get 12 bytes between the Ethernet header and IP header. This means that wireshark does not recognize the IP header as, and I can't use any of the wireshark's advanced features.

Anyone know how to get rid of those bytes, or perhaps what they are?

* I attach picture of a window of a sample http packet
* Please help :)
