Wi-Fi Direct Client Operation

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.

A Wi-Fi Direct Role port is configured in operation mode DOT11_OPERATION_MODE_WFD_CLIENT before it can function as a Client. Once the operation mode is configured, the port should perform similar to DOT11_OPERATION_MODE_EXTENSIBLE_STATION. It should follow the guidelines for the Extensible Station mode for association, disassociation and roaming and handling of data packets. Except for the OIDs, NDIS_STATUS_INDICATION and Data Type exceptions listed in Wi-Fi Direct Reference Tables, it should handle all the OIDs and NDIS_STATUS_INDICATIONS and Data Types that a miniport driver is expected to support in Extensible Station mode. It should also continue to support the Wi-Fi Direct OIDs listed in Wi-Fi Direct Reference Tables.OID_DOT11_WFD_GROUP_JOIN_PARAMETERS
