A WDM driver-based modem should not continuously disable thread preemption for more than 4.4 milliseconds. This guideline accommodates 400 microseconds of interrupts being disabled together with two back-to-back episodes of 2.0 milliseconds of extended processing at DISPATCH_LEVEL, as up to four 500-microsecond DPCs execute sequentially.

B188.8.131.52 WDM modem latency tolerances [Clarifications]
Note: WDM modem latency tolerance is a recommendation. This is not tested.
A driver-based modem should be able to tolerate:
A period of 4 milliseconds with interrupts disabled.
A continuous period of 8 milliseconds during which a queued DPC is held off from execution, possibly by other DPCs.
A 16-millisecond period when thread scheduling is continuously disabled.

B18.104.22.168 NDIS 5.0 miniport driver model: "Network Devices and Protocols" in the Windows DDK
The network adapter driver must be based on and comply with NDIS 5.0 in order to take advantage of new operating system capabilities. The driver must follow the NDIS 5.0 miniport driver model defined in the Windows DDK.
Important: The development of full media access control (MAC) drivers is no longer supported.
If the network device is for connection-oriented media, such as ATM, ISDN, frame relay, or X.25, it must have a connection-oriented miniport driver that follows the connection-oriented model defined for NDIS 5.0. Also, for connection-oriented media, there must be an NDIS 5.0 call manager driver as
