typedef enum tagWCN_PASSWORD_TYPE {
  WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_PUSH_BUTTON,
  WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_PIN,
  WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_PIN_REGISTRAR_SPECIFIED,
  WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_OOB_SPECIFIED,
  WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_WFDS
} WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE;

Constants

 
WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_PUSH_BUTTON
Indicates the device uses a WPS button interface to put the device into wireless provisioning mode. If this value is specified when calling IWCNDevice::SetPassword, set dwPasswordLength to zero and pbPassword to NULL.
WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_PIN
Indicates that authentication is secured via a PIN. The user must provide the PIN of the device. Usually, the PIN is a 4 or 8-digit number printed on a label attached to the device, or displayed on the screen. If this value is specified when calling IWCNDevice::SetPassword, set dwPasswordLength to the number of digits in the password, and pbPassword to point to a buffer containing the ASCII representation of the pin.
WCN_PASSWORD_TYPE_PIN_REGISTRAR_SPECIFIED
Indicates that authentication is secured via a PIN, as above, but that the PIN is specified by the registrar.
