802.11 Miniport Driver Registration

To be configured as an 802.11 device by the operating system, the driver must support the OID_GEN_PHYSICAL_MEDIUMobject. The driver must return a value of NdisPhysicalMediumWirelessLan in response to a query of OID_GEN_PHYSICAL_MEDIUM.

The 802.11 miniport driver provides an 802.3 emulation interface to any protocol that binds to it. Because of this, the driver must return a value of NdisMedium802_3 when queried for OID_GEN_MEDIA_SUPPORTED.

The following figure illustrates the OID flow to the 802.11 miniport driver when the driver is queried for the media types it supports.
