NDIS IM and underlying WiFi

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Drivers' started by Vitalie Vrabie, Apr 19, 2008.

  1. hi guys,

    I'm developing a NDIS Intermediate Miniport driver and i want to add
    some functionality to it.

    My IM is designed for WiFi networks. In the driver, I need to know the
    SSID of the network the underlying wifi card is currently connected
    to, and whether this network is Ad-Hoc or Infrastructure.

    The ideal solution is to have a callback that would be called when the
    underlying is connecting/disconnecting to/from the network.

    Any insight?

    Study the OID_802_11_xyz family of OIDs.

    Good luck,

    Your IM just sends the OIDs using NdisRequest().
    Is this for NDIS 5.1 or Native (Vista) wi-fi?
    For NDIS5, medium connect indications from the miniport
    are the callbacks you need.

    Regards,
