DOT11_BSS_TYPE Enumeration

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 DOT11_BSS_TYPE enumeration defines a basic service set (BSS) network type.

Syntax

typedef enum _DOT11_BSS_TYPE {
  dot11_BSS_type_infrastructure  = 1,
  dot11_BSS_type_independent     = 2,
  dot11_BSS_type_any             = 3
} DOT11_BSS_TYPE, *PDOT11_BSS_TYPE;

Constants

dot11_BSS_type_infrastructure Specifies an infrastructure BSS network.
dot11_BSS_type_independent Specifies an independent BSS (IBSS) network.
dot11_BSS_type_any Specifies either infrastructure or IBSS network.

Remarks

The dot11_BSS_type_any enumerator is valid only if it is specified when OID_DOT11_SCAN_REQUEST is set. dot11_BSS_type_any is used to request a scan for all types of BSSs that are visible to the 802.11 station.
