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_INCOMING_ASSOCIATION_DECISION object identifier (OID) requests that the miniport driver notify the NIC whether it has accepted an incoming request from an 802.11 peer station to perform an association procedure.

Note Support for this OID is mandatory. NDIS supports this OID with the direct OID request interface. For more information about the direct OID request interface, see NDIS 6.1 Direct OID Request Interface.

The data type for this OID is the DOT11_INCOMING_ASSOC_DECISION 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.

Note Miniports must handle this OID synchronously. They must not process requests as pending.

For more information about the association procedure, see Association Operation Guidelines for Extensible Access Point (ExtAP) Mode.



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