Programming ethernet cards using a driver.

I would like to know the kind of interface a programmer gets when he
wants to write any networking utility using only the driver which
comes with the ethernet card.  For example I use an ne2000 card and
have the ne2000.com driver. Once this driver is loaded,I guess I can
access the card using some interrupts provided by the driver. What are they, where can I find the specific documentation? I believe
this interface should be general for any card .

In Windows95, just go to the system menu and  under the network card, check the resources allocated, and  you just need to allocate any free interrupt that is available, if the card is a jumperless one, that is. If you are using it in DOS, you need a setup program to allocate interrupts to it. One such program is lanset.exe, which I can send you if you need it. But, there are plenty of them on the net, just do a search for lanset or netsetup and you will find them.

I think my question was misunderstood. I was asking from a programmer's point of view. I want to be able to write netwroking
software which directly interfaces with the ethernet card. What I
was asking was that what kind of Programmer's interface does an
ethernet driver like ne2000.com provide ?

ne2000.com is not intended to be used as a standalone driver, its a driver for the ODI type of interfacing. To get any real use of ne2000.com you should execute lsl.com first, then you have ODI's API's at your disposal.
