First I suggest upgrading to a later (and event latest) version of Pcap.Net.


Can you further explain what exactly is it you're trying to do?

What do you mean by "send data using MAC adresses"? Do you mean just Ethernet packets with payloads?

Why would version 0.6.0 not work for you?

Why not upgrade to .NET 4 and use version 0.7.0?


Anyways, I think you simply need to create packets with Ethernet Layer (with the right source and destination addresses) and a Payload Layer.

I believe there are examples in the user's guide that should show you the basics.


Let me know if you need more help,
