DOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS (Compact 2013)

3/26/2014

This structure specifies why the Native 802.11 miniport driver is performing a roaming operation. The driver includes a DOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS structure when the driver makes an NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_ROAMING_START indication.


typedef struct DOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS {
  NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER  Header;
  DOT11_MAC_ADDRESS  AdhocBSSID;
  DOT11_SSID  AdhocSSID;
  DOT11_ASSOC_STATUS  uRoamingReason;
} DOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS, *PDOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS;

Header

The type, revision, and size of the DOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS structure. This member is formatted as an NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER structure.

The miniport driver must set the members of Header to the following values:

Type

This member must be set to NDIS_OBJECT_TYPE_DEFAULT

Revision

DOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS_REVISION_1

Size

This member must be set to sizeof(DOT11_ROAMING_START_PARAMETERS)

AdhocBSSID

If the IEEE 802.11 dot11DesiredBSSType MIB object is set to dot11_BSS_type_independent, the AdhocBSSID member contains the basic service set (BSS) identifier (BSSID) of the independent BSS (IBSS) network that the 802.11 station is trying to roam to.

If the dot11DesiredBSSType MIB object is set to dot11_BSS_type_infrastructure, the miniport driver must fill AdhocBSSID with zeros.

For more information about the data type for this member, see DOT11_MAC_ADDRESS.

AdhocSSID

If the dot11DesiredBSSType MIB object is set to dot11_BSS_type_independent, the AdhocSSID member contains the service set identifier (SSID) of the IBSS network that the 802.11 station is trying to roam to.

If the dot11DesiredBSSType MIB object is set to dot11_BSS_type_infrastructure, the miniport driver must fill AdhocSSID with zeros.

For more information about the data type for this member, see DOT11_SSID.

For more information about the IEEE 802.11 dot11DesiredBSSType MIB object, see OID_DOT11_DESIRED_BSS_TYPE.

uRoamingReason

The reason that the 802.11 station is roaming. This is formatted as a DOT11_ASSOC_STATUS value.
