MAC/PHY Reset

The media access control (MAC) and PHY layers on the 802.11 station can be reset through a method request of OID_DOT11_RESET_REQUEST. When the method request of this OID is made, the miniport driver invokes the following 802.11 MAC layer management entity (MLME) and PHY-layer management entity (PLME) service primitives:

  • MLME-RESET.request, as defined in Clause 6.3.10.2 of the IEEE 802.11-2012 standard. Through this primitive, the miniport driver resets the MAC sublayer.

  • PLME-RESET.request, as defined in Clause 6.5.2 of the IEEE 802.11-2012 standard. Through this primitive, the miniport driver resets the PHY layer.

The following topics describe the actions performed by the miniport driver when a method request of OID_DOT11_RESET_REQUEST is made:
