DOT11_SSID 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_SSID structure defines an 802.11 service set identifier (SSID).

Syntax


typedef struct _DOT11_SSID {
  ULONG uSSIDLength;
  UCHAR ucSSID[DOT11_SSID_MAX_LENGTH];
} DOT11_SSID, *PDOT11_SSID;

Members

uSSIDLength

The length, in bytes, of the ucSSID array.

ucSSID

The SSID.

Remarks

The SSID that is specified by the ucSSID member is not a null-terminated ASCII string. The length of the SSID is determined by the uSSIDLength member.

A wildcard SSID is an SSID whose uSSIDLength member is set to zero. When the desired SSID is set to the wildcard SSID, the 802.11 station can connect to any basic service set (BSS) network.

Requirements

Version

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

Header
