"Media unauthenticated" when bypassing WLan AutoConfig

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Benoît Bousquet, Dec 13, 2006.

  1. Our wireless management utility uses OID_802_11_* codes to manage wireless
    adapters under Windows 2000/XP. In both cases this implies stopping the
    Wireless Zero Config (wzcsvc) service. This works fine.

    I have been experimenting with our MSDN release of Vista (Business Edition
    in this case), trying to replicate that same behavior. I am thus stopping
    the WLan AutoConfig (wlansvc) service. However, when I associate to a
    network using our normal OID sequence (OID_802_11_INFRASTRUCTURE_MODE,
    OID_802_11_AUTHENTICATION_MODE, OID_802_11_ADD_WEP, OID_802_11_WEP_STATUS,
    OID_802_11_BSSID, OID_802_11_SSID) I do not get the expected result. The
    wireless adapter associates fine with the access point, but the actual
    network connection does not seem to get enabled (the ipconfig tool shows the
    connection as being in the "media unauthenticated" state and thus does not
    seem to be assigned its IP information).

    This is obviously some new behavior in Windows Vista and I still haven't
    found a way around it.

    Any ideas?

    Just google the web, you may follow this

    Set OID_802_11_INFRASTRUCTURE_MODE
    Set OID_802_11_AUTHENTICATION_MODE:
    Set OID_802_11_ADD_WE
    Set OID_SSI

    Best regards
