GenMAC is a personal attempt of Willibald Meyer to design a device driver that offers support for a lot of recent and modern network interface cards (NICs), with a strong accent for gigabit and on-board network interfaces. OS/2 uses network drivers compliant to the NDIS 2.01 specifications, a standard developed between 3Com Corporation and Microsoft. However, since the latest versions of Microsoft Windows use the newer NDIS 5.0, most manufacturers tend to lack development of OS/2-specific device drivers. This project will eventually give an answer to this problem by offering a decently-engineered and "universal" network driver with support for the most common modern network cards.
