NDIS Delay Interface (NDIS 5.1)

Note   NDIS 5. x has been deprecated and is superseded by NDIS 6. x. For new NDIS driver development, see Network Drivers Starting with Windows Vista. For information about porting NDIS 5. x drivers to NDIS 6. x, see Porting NDIS 5.x Drivers to NDIS 6.0.

NdisMSleep causes the caller's thread to block for the specified interval. A driver calls NdisMSleepduring initialization or when halting the adapter; for instance, while waiting for the NIC to complete initialization. NdisMSleepis only called at IRQL = PASSIVE_LEVEL.

NdisStallExecution causes the caller's thread to stall for a specified interval not to exceed 50 milliseconds. NdisStallExecutionis only called at raised IRQL when NdisMSleepcannot be used.
