Dot11ExtRequestVirtualStation function

The IHV Extensions DLL calls the Dot11ExtRequestVirtualStation function to request that the operating system create a virtual 802.11 station.

Syntax


DWORD APIENTRY Dot11ExtRequestVirtualStation(
  _In_opt_    HANDLE hDot11PrimaryHandle,
  _Reserved_  LPVOID pvReserved
);

Parameters

hDot11PrimaryHandle [in, optional]

A handle used by the operating system to reference the primary physical wireless LAN (WLAN) adapter. This handle value was received as the hDot11SvcHandle parameter through a previous call to the Dot11ExtIhvInitAdapter IHV Handler function.

pvReserved

This parameter is reserved for use by the operating system and should be NULL.

Return value

If the call succeeds, the function returns ERROR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns an error code defined in Winerror.h.

Remarks

When this request function completes successfully, the operating system begins to process the request to create a virtual station. It is possible that the operating system will call the Dot11ExtIhvInitAdapter IHV Handler function to initialize the virtual station before or after the call to Dot11ExtRequestVirtualStation returns.

After the operating system creates the new virtual station, the IHV Extensions DLL should expect to receive a call to the Dot11ExtIhvInitAdapter IHV Handler function. In this call, the operating system passes a handle to the new virtual adapter through the hDot11SvcHandle parameter.

Requirements

Version

Available in Windows 7 and later versions of the Windows operating systems.

Header
