RE: assembly, any network capabilities?

I never needed it, but you can search the internet for example programs. On my website you will find links to some databases.

Basically, you need to know which I/O channels are being used by the network hardware (an ISA, MCA, EISA or PCI card) and wich DMA channel and then you can start searching how to get data transferred. In this case you will actually be going to write a driver.
If your network hardware has a driver already, you can try to figure out how it works (this will be a little bit easyer if it's not a Windows driver).

Don't worry what people think about you. They're too busy wondering what you think about them.

RE: assembly, any network capabilities?

There are some standard ways of getting to the network, after all, such as IPX/SPX and the like, and I think there are Interrupts which allow you to access them easily.  You can try to check Ralph Brown's Interrut List, which contains that information but will give you a headache hehe... !!!
