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

ftp://ftp.3com.com/pub/nic/ 

Don't know about this specific driver

Good-luck
