_DOT11_ADAPTER structure

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_ADAPTER structure identifies a wireless LAN (WLAN) adapter, as well as the operating attributes of the instance of the Native 802.11 miniport driver that manages the adapter.

Syntax

typedef struct _DOT11_ADAPTER {
  GUID                         gAdapterId;
  LPWSTR                       pszDescription;
  DOT11_CURRENT_OPERATION_MODE Dot11CurrentOpMode;
} DOT11_ADAPTER, *PDOT11_ADAPTER;

Members

gAdapterId

The globally unique identifier (GUID) of the WLAN adapter.

Dot11CurrentOpMode

The current Native 802.11 operation mode of the miniport driver instance that manages the WLAN adapter. The value of Dot11CurrentOpMode is formatted as a DOT11_CURRENT_OPERATION_MODE value.

Remarks

The operating system calls the Dot11ExtIhvInitAdapter IHV handler function whenever a WLAN adapter becomes available and enabled for use, such as when a PCMCIA adapter is inserted. The operating system defines the WLAN adapter by passing in the DOT11_ADAPTER structure through the pDot11Adapter parameter of the Dot11ExtIhvInitAdapter function.
