Native 802.11 Operational OIDs

The Native 802.11 Operational object identifiers (OIDs) query and set the configuration and operation of the 802.11 station. These OIDs are applicable to miniport drivers that support any of the Native 802.11 operation modes. For more information about these operation modes, see Native 802.11 Operation Modes.

Note  For the Windows Vista operating system, only the Extensible Station (ExtSTA) operation mode is supported.

In the following table, these abbreviations are used to specify the requirements for Native 802.11 Operational OID query (Q), set (S), and NDIS 6.0 method (M) requests:

R

Indicates that support for the object is required. The miniport driver must not fail set or query requests for the object by returning NDIS_STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED from its MiniportOidRequest function.

O

Indicates that support for the object is optional. The miniport driver can either support query or set requests for the object, or the driver can fail the request by returning NDIS_STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED from its MiniportOidRequest function.

X

Indicates that the specified state of a Native 802.11 operating mode supports a set request for the object. If the miniport driver is not in the specified state, the miniport driver must fail the set request by returning NDIS_STATUS_INVALID_STATE from its MiniportOidRequest function.

OIDs that support query requests can be queried from any state of the miniport driver's operation mode.

For more information about the operation modes of a Native 802.11 miniport driver, see Native 802.11 Operation Modes.
