    Packet transmission without IP-Stack


      Hi everyone,


      im currently trying to send a packet without IP/TCP-Stack with a 82541ER controller.

      I am programming in Assembler and use the PCI-Interface.

      In the spec of the 82541-series in the chapter of the transmission process there is a line like:

      "Ethernet, IP and TCP/UDP headers are prepared by the stack."

      my question is:

      "Is it necessary to prepare the IP and the TCP header or will the packet be sent only with the Ethernet header?"


      Best Regards
