Window 2000 Ethernet Diagnostic Program The packet driver demonstrates the use of the upper edge NDIS 3.0 services to communicate with NDIS MAC drivers. The driver creates a device object which may be opened by Win32 apps via a symbolic link. A Packet may be sent by writing data to the driver. Receives may be pended to the driver by reading from the driver. The driver expects that it will be bound an Ethernet card as it makes assumptions about frame size. If the driver is installed but the card doesn't exist, there will be a warning message box shown after the invalid card is chosen at the first dialog. There are 4 necessary files: 1. packet.inf ------ the setup file 2. packet.sys ------ the packet file 3. packet32.dll ------ the AP DLL file 4. W2KDiag.exe ------ the AP file The install procedure is as followed: 1. Make sure that packet.inf, packet.sys and packet32.dll are in the same directory. 2. Choose "Start" --> "Setting" --> "Network and Dial-up Connections"--> "Local Area Connection"-->"Properties". 3. Press "Install" and choice "Protocal", "Add..", "Have Disk..". Key in the directory which is mentioned in step 1. The OS will start installing when you press "OK" in "Install From Disk" dialog box. 4. Copy the execution file "W2KDiag.exe" and "packet32.dll" to any directory you want. Note: 1. Be sure to restart the computer after installation. 2. Remove other protocols, if they disturb the test seriously. 3. The function buttom of "Receive" in W2KDiag.exe shows the test patterns that are sent by another diagnostic program.Download Driver Pack
