packet drivers for OS/2

I'm looking for packet drivers for OS/2.
I have a 3Com EtherLink III ISA adapter (3C509B).
I've downlaoded the drivers from the net, but it doesn't include a packet driver for OS/2.
I also tried looking for drivers for a few other Network cards that I have, and none of them include a packet driver.
Only DOS packet driver seems to be included.

Are there any OS/2 packet drivers?
If so, where can I download them from?

Try this FTP site for 3com OS/2 drivers

Don't know about this specific driver

Good-luck

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
