DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure

Important  The Native 802.11 Wireless LAN interface is deprecated in Windows 10 and later. Please use the WLAN Device Driver Interface (WDI) instead. For more information about WDI, see WLAN Universal Windows driver model.
 

The DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure specifies a list of zero or more PHY types.

Syntax


typedef struct DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST {
  NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER Header;
  ULONG              uNumOfEntries;
  ULONG              uTotalNumOfEntries;
  ULONG              dot11PhyId[1];
} DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST, *PDOT11_PHY_ID_LIST;

Members

Header

The type, revision, and size of the DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST 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

This member must be set to DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST_REVISION_1.

Size

This member must be set to sizeof(DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST).

For more information about these members, see NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER.

uNumOfEntries

The number of entries in the dot11PhyId array.

uTotalNumOfEntries

The maximum number of entries that the dot11PhyId array can contain.

dot11PhyId

The list of PHY identifiers (IDs).

Remarks

A PHY ID in the dot11PhyId array must be one of the following:

  • An index into the table of supported PHYs that are defined by the Native 802.11 Operational msDot11SupportedPhyTypes management information base (MIB) object. For more information about PHY IDs and the msDot11SupportedPhyTypes MIB object, see OID_DOT11_SUPPORTED_PHY_TYPES.

  • A PHY ID with the value of DOT11_PHY_ID_ANY. This PHY ID is called a wildcard PHY ID and is used to specify any supported PHY on the 802.11 station. If the wildcard PHY ID is used, it must be the only entry in the dot11PhyId array.

A miniport driver returns the DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure when queried by either OID_DOT11_ACTIVE_PHY_LIST or OID_DOT11_DESIRED_PHY_LIST.

When these OIDs are queried, the miniport driver must verify that the InformationBuffer member of the MiniportOidRequest function's OidRequest parameter is large enough to return the entire DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure, including all entries in the dot11PhyId array. The value of the InformationBufferLength member of the OidRequest parameter determines what the miniport driver must do, as the following list shows:

  • If the value of the InformationBufferLength member is less than the length, in bytes, of the entire DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure, the miniport driver must do the following:

    • Set the uNumOfEntries member to zero.

    • Set the uTotalNumOfEntries member to the number of entries in the dot11PhyId array.

    • For the OidRequest parameter, set the BytesWritten member to zero and the BytesNeeded member to the length, in bytes, of the entire DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure.

    • Fail the query request by returning NDIS_STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW from its MiniportOidRequest function.

  • If the value of the InformationBufferLength member is greater than or equal to the length, in bytes, of the entire DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure, the miniport driver must do the following to complete a successful query request:

    • For the DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure, set the uNumOfEntries and uTotalNumOfEntries members to the total number of entries in the dot11PhyId array.

    • For the OidRequest parameter, set the BytesNeeded member to zero and the BytesWritten member to the length, in bytes, of the entire DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure. The miniport driver must also copy the entire DOT11_PHY_ID_LIST structure to the InformationBuffer member.

    • Return NDIS_STATUS_SUCCESS from its MiniportOidRequest function.
