winsock – Windows networking using only Ethernet Frames

Use WinPCap, it has an an API to send and listen to raw data.
You can build your communicate layer with it.

Give the WinAoE code a look-see – it says it lets Windows talk to ATA over Ethernet devices which means it has to communicate without any of the upper layers of the network stack.

Edited:

As near as I can tell, if you want to send raw ethernet frames, you want NdisSend and friends.

As well as winpcap and NDIS you could also look at raw sockets which are a standard part of the Windows API and dont require you to write driver code http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms740548(v=vs.85).aspx.
