When queried, the OID_DOT11_MAC_ADDRESS object identifier (OID) requests that the miniport driver return the value of the IEEE 802.11 dot11MACAddress MIB object.

This MIB object contains the media access control (MAC) address currently assigned to the 802.11 station.

The data type for OID_DOT11_MAC_ADDRESS is the DOT11_MAC_ADDRESS structure.

Note  A Native 802.11 miniport driver that is designed to run on the Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 operating systems must always reset this 802.11 MIB OID to its default value. This is the case regardless of the value of the bSetDefaultMIB member of the DOT11_RESET_REQUEST structure. This requirement applies to a miniport driver that, in a call to the NdisMSetMiniportAttributes function, sets MiniportAttributes -> Native_802_11_Attributes -> Header -> Revision to NDIS_MINIPORT_ADAPTER_802_11_ATTRIBUTES_REVISION_1.



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