Therefore, the NDIS acts as the interface between the media access control MAC sublayer, which is the lower sublayer of the data link layer, and the network layer layer 3. This page was last edited on 7 Novemberat The device class-specific driver models are typically structured as a port driver written ndiss2 Microsoft paired with a miniport driver written by an independent hardware vendor.

Promote cracked software, or other illegal content. The NDIS is a library of functions often referred to as a ” wrapper ” that hides the underlying complexity of the NIC hardware and serves as a standard interface for level 3 network protocol drivers and hardware level MAC drivers.

This design enables adding several chained realtel drivers between the miniport and protocol drivers. Therefore, driver vendors cannot assume that the interface that they send traffic to is implemented by the last driver in the chain.
In practice, intermediate drivers implement both miniport and protocol interfaces. Because implementations cannot assume that other drivers received the same buffers, one must treat the incoming buffers as read only and a driver that changes the packet content must allocate its own buffers.
