NdisDprFreePacket releases a driver-allocated packet descriptor and returns it to the free list. Because Windows CE does not support DPC IRQL, all NdisDprXXX functions perform identically to the non-DPR equivalent.

VOID NdisDprFreePacket(


Return Values



Before calling NdisDprFreePacket, the driver either must call NdisFreeBuffer as many times as necessary to release all buffer descriptors chained to the packet, or it must call an NdisUnchainBufferAtXxx function as many times as necessary to save all pointers to buffer descriptors. Otherwise, memory associated with buffer descriptors in the chain remains unusable by the driver and by NDIS until the system is rebooted.


OS Versions: Windows CE .NET 4.0 and later.
Header: Ndis.h.
