Windows CE Miniport-Driver Architecture
Miniport drivers directly manage network adapters that are installed on a device. At the lower edge, miniport drivers use NDIS to "talk" to the adapter hardware. At the upper edge, miniport drivers present an interface to allow protocol drivers to configure the adapter and to send and receive packets over the network.
Windows CE 3.0 supports WAN miniport drivers. A WAN miniport provides protocol drivers (for example, PPP) access to a WAN interface.
Windows CE currently supports miniport drivers for the following medium types:
- Ethernet (802.3)
- Token Ring (802.5)
