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.

When set, the OID_DOT11_DISASSOCIATE_PEER_REQUEST object identifier (OID) requests that the miniport driver disassociate the NIC from a specified peer station with which the 802.11 station is associated. If the NIC has an association with the specified peer station, it must disassociate from the peer station as described in Explicit Disassociation Operations and return a DOT11_STATUS_DISASSOCIATION status indication. If the NIC disassociates from all peer stations (when DOT11_DISASSOCIATE_PEER_REQUEST. PeerMacAddr = 0xFF), it can return a single DOT11_STATUS_DISASSOCIATION status indication.

Note  Support for this OID is mandatory.

The data type for this OID is the DOT11_DISASSOCIATE_PEER_REQUEST structure.

When this OID is set, the NIC must behave as follows:

  • If the Extensible AP is in the INIT state, the NIC must fail the request and return a status indication of NDIS_STATUS_INVALID_STATE.

  • If the Extensible AP is in the OP state, the NIC must complete the request if the peer station is in the association table. The NIC must enforce synchronization because the NIC could receive this request while the NIC is already associating or disassociating with a peer station.

While the NIC is in the process of associating with a peer station, it will not receive this OID, but it can receive the reset request OID, OID_DOT11_RESET_REQUEST.



Available in Windows 7 and later versions of the Windows operating systems.
