Instead, NDIS miniport drivers for WAN adapters must call other functions. The following table shows the functions called by NDIS miniport drivers for WAN adapters.

Function Description

NdisMWanIndicateReceive

Notifies NDIS that a particular link has received a packet and that the packet has been identified by the given link-context handle on a particular network adapter by the adapter handle. Notifies NDIS that the full packet is available to be forwarded to the appropriate bound protocol drivers.

NdisMWanIndicateReceiveComplete

Notifies NDIS that one or more receive operations on a particular link, identified by the given link-context handle, and on a particular network adapter (identified by the adapter handle) are complete (that is, the preceding call to the NdisMWanIndicateReceive function has returned), so that NDIS can notify the appropriate bound protocol drivers.

NdisMWanSendComplete

Returns the packet and final status of a completed send request for which the driver previously returned NDIS_STATUS_PENDING so that NDIS can return the completed packet to the appropriate bound protocol driver.
