Thanks for your reply. At least can I get information about the
receive latency of the PacketCE version or possible ways of measuring
it. I want to compute the time difference between the packet received
in the wire and the packet given to an application from PacketCE.

In general in order to port that version of WinPcap to the latest version of CE and WinPcap probably requires a lot of kernel work --> you need to have some good knowledge of the CE kernel and networking stack.
