Native 802.11 Status Indications

Native 802.11 Status Indications

Most of the indications made by the Native 802.11 miniport driver are specific to the Native 802.11 media. For example, a miniport driver can make a Native 802.11 indication whenever:

  • The 802.11 station has completed a scan request initiated through OID_DOT11_SCAN_REQUEST.

  • The maximum length is changed for 802.11 media access control (MAC) protocol data unit (MPDU) frames.

The miniport driver makes a Native 802.11 indication by calling NdisMIndicateStatusEx. The StatusIndication parameter of NdisMIndicateStatusEx is a pointer to an NDIS_STATUS_INDICATION structure, whose members are set as follows:


This member specifies the NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_XXX status code for the indication. These status code values are define in Ndis.h. For more information about NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_XXX codes, see Status Indications


A pointer to a caller-allocated buffer that contains data that is specific to the indication made by the miniport driver.


The length, in bytes, of the buffer referenced by the StatusBuffer parameter.
