Thanks for this quick answer ...
I have not so much experience in writing network device drivers. I look for a
device independent ethernet driver module. This module should base on simple
functions like open(), close() etc.
I heard from an implementation ethernet over TCP/IP. (The reason was to
connect two offices over an ISDN line including ARP, IPX and TCP/IP)
But I can not found the source :-(
Quote:>I have implemented ethernet emulation in the Mobitex radio modem driver.
Is this a change in the original module or another module?

Interesting. After registration my device as ethernet arp hardware I have an
ethX ethernet device? But, how can I do that.
Which steps are importend to register my device as an ethernet device?
Do you have an advice for some related documentation?
Would you be so kind to give me a look at your driver?
thanks in advance
