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.
The media access control (MAC) and PHY layers on the 802.11 station can be reset through a method request of OID_DOT11_RESET_REQUEST. When the method request of this OID is made, the miniport driver invokes the following 802.11 MAC layer management entity (MLME) and PHY-layer management entity (PLME) service primitives:
MLME-RESET.request, as defined in Clause 220.127.116.11 of the IEEE 802.11-2012 standard. Through this primitive, the miniport driver resets the MAC sublayer.
PLME-RESET.request, as defined in Clause 6.5.2 of the IEEE 802.11-2012 standard. Through this primitive, the miniport driver resets the PHY layer.
The following topics describe the actions performed by the miniport driver when a method request of OID_DOT11_RESET_REQUEST is made:
