When set, the OID_802_11_RELOAD_DEFAULTS OID requests that the miniport driver reload the defaults of the specified type.

The miniport driver returns NDIS_STATUS_INVALID_DATA if an invalid type is specified.

The data passed in a setting of this OID is the NDIS_802_11_RELOAD_DEFAULTS enumeration. This enumeration defines the available reload types as follows:


Specifies that the driver must reload the available default WEP keys from permanent storage into the active configuration on the device. Permanent storage can be a Microsoft Windows registry key, or flash settings on the NIC. This ensures that the WEP key settings on the device return to the same values as those that were loaded when the device was first enabled.

The keys must only be loaded if they are valid for the device. For example, if the encryption state is TKIP and WEP is not enabled, then the WEP keys must be not be loaded; the miniport driver must not report an error in this case.

The miniport driver and its underlying NIC must discard all current encryption and integrity keys before loading the default WEP keys.

The miniport driver must not load keys that were set with OID_802_11_ADD_WEP or OID_802_11_ADD_KEY.

When set by this OID, the miniport driver must reset its network type to Ndis802_11Automode. For more information about this network type, see OID_802_11_NETWORK_TYPE_IN_USE.
