The packets are timestamped at kernel level when they are processed by the WinPcap kernel driver, so basically when the network card driver notifies the upper protocol drivers (like winpcap or tcp/ip) that a packet arrived. 

Have a nice day

  Hello everyone:
                Who can tell me when the time stamp being attached to a packet when receiveing a packet?
                 Is the stamp stand for  the time the packet arrived at the net card?(microsecond)
                 Is the timestamp generated at the kernel level ? 
                 Is the timestamp being attached to a packet at the kernel level?
