    You'll need a packet driver in order to communicate to other devices from your network card. The packet driver is the step that converts your commands/data into whatever interface the network card uses to send it down the wire. The hardware interface varies from card to card as to how data is sent, so there is no single answer to your question.

    If you've got one of these network cards, this is a good place to start, includes lots of source code:
