the PacketRequest() function is used to send an OID (object ID number) to 
the interface card driver. It can be used, for example, to retrieve the status 
of the error counters on the adapter, its MAC address, the list of the multicast 
groups defined on it, and so on. 

E.g. see here:

or Google for "PacketRequest + WinPcap".
