Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in the test requirements: Wireless LAN (802.11) Testing Prerequisites.

The following suites are available:

  • AutoPowerSaveMode_ext

  • NetworkListOffload_ext

  • NicPowerState_ext

The AutoPowerSaveMode_ext suite consists of the following:

 

Name Description

Verify device supports Auto Power Save Mode

Check capabilities of the device.

Verify send and receive with DUT on auto power save mode enabled

  • Verify auto power save mode = true by sending unicast data from the DUT to the access point.

  • Verify auto power save mode = true by receiving unicast data from the access point.

  • Verify auto power save mode = true by sending broadcast data from the DUT to the access point.

  • Verify auto power save mode = true by receiving broadcast data from the access point.

Verify send and receive with DUT on auto power save mode disabled

  • Verify auto power save mode = false by sending unicast data from the DUT to the access point.

  • Verify auto power save mode = false by receiving unicast data from the access point.

  • Verify auto power save mode = false by sending broadcast data from the DUT to the access point.

  • Verify auto power save mode = false by receiving broadcast data from the access point.

The NetworkListOffload_ext suite consists of the following:

 

Name Description

VerifyReportedMaxSizeIsGreaterThanRequirement

Verify the miniport reports offload capability greater than the requirement of 10.

VerifyDriverAcceptsListWithSingleElement

Verify the miniport does not reject a list with a single element.

VerifyDriverAcceptsEmptyList

Verify the miniport does not reject an empty NLO list.

VerifyDriverAcceptsListWithSizeRequirement

Verify the miniport does not reject a list with the required size.

VerifyDriverAcceptsListWithReportedMaxSize

Verify the miniport does not reject a list with the reported size.

VerifyDriverNotifiesOSOfVisibleNetworkWithinRequiredTime

Test miniport indicates status. This is the only test to use SoftAP.

The NicPowerState_ext suite consists of the following:

 

Name Description

VerifyStateSetQuery

  • Set the OID_DOT11_NIC_POWER_STATE to radio OFF for all PHY IDs and verify that the query returns the correct state.

  • Set the OID_DOT11_NIC_POWER_STATE to radio ON for all PHY IDs and verify the query returns the correct state.

VerifyStateOff

Sleep for several seconds while all PHY IDs are disabled. Verify that the statistics counters for each PHY ID are not incremented while PHYs are disabled.

VerifyStateIndications

  • Set the OID_DOT11_NIC_POWER_STATE to radio OFF for all PHY IDs and verify the NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_PHY_STATE_CHANGED indication is received.

  • Set the OID_DOT11_NIC_POWER_STATE to radio ON for each PHY ID and verify the NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_PHY_STATE_CHANGED indication is received.

VerifyStateReset

Reset the DUT and verify that the NIC power state is persisted for all PHY IDs after reset.

VerifyStateDisableEnable

Verify that the NIC power state is persisted for all PHY IDs after a enable or disable.

VerifyStateHardware

Verify the DUT reports correct state and indications when hardware switch is enabled or disabled.

The test will show a dialog box asking if the user wants to test with a hardware switch. If yes, the test will tell the user when to turn the hardware switch off or on. If no or the dialog box is ignored, test is skipped.
