Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in the test requirements: Wireless LAN (802.11) Testing Prerequisites.

The test calls NDIS with OID_GEN_RESET_COUNTS to obtain the total number of driver resets.

The operating system keeps track of the number of times that the miniport has reset on its own. The operating system also queries the miniport for how many times it has reset. This value is the sum of both numbers. The test will fail if the number of resets is greater than zero.
