DOT11_PHY_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_PHY_TYPE enumeration defines an 802.11 PHY and media type.

Syntax

typedef enum _DOT11_PHY_TYPE {
  dot11_phy_type_unknown     = 0,
  dot11_phy_type_any         = dot11_phy_type_unknown,
  dot11_phy_type_fhss        = 1,
  dot11_phy_type_dsss        = 2,
  dot11_phy_type_irbaseband  = 3,
  dot11_phy_type_ofdm        = 4,
  dot11_phy_type_hrdsss      = 5,
  dot11_phy_type_erp         = 6,
  dot11_phy_type_ht          = 7,
  dot11_phy_type_vht         = 8,
  dot11_phy_type_IHV_start   = 0x80000000,
  dot11_phy_type_IHV_end     = 0xffffffff
} DOT11_PHY_TYPE, *PDOT11_PHY_TYPE;

Constants

dot11_phy_type_unknown Specifies an unknown or uninitialized PHY type.
dot11_phy_type_any Specifies an unknown or uninitialized PHY type.
dot11_phy_type_fhss Specifies a frequency-hopping spread-spectrum (FHSS) PHY.
dot11_phy_type_dsss Specifies a direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) PHY.
dot11_phy_type_irbaseband Specifies an infrared (IR) baseband PHY.
dot11_phy_type_ofdm Specifies an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) 802.11a PHY.
dot11_phy_type_hrdsss Specifies a high-rate DSSS (HRDSSS) 802.11b PHY.
dot11_phy_type_erp Specifies an extended-rate 802.11g PHY (ERP).
dot11_phy_type_ht Specifies a high-throughput (HT) 802.11n PHY. Each 802.11n PHY, whether dual-band or not, is specified as this PHY type.
dot11_phy_type_vht Specifies a very high-throughput (VHT) 802.11ac PHY.
dot11_phy_type_dmg Specifies a Directional Multi-Gigabit (DMG) 802.11ad PHY.
dot11_phy_type_he Specifies a High Efficiency (HE) 802.11ax PHY.
dot11_phy_type_IHV_start Specifies the start of the range that is used to define proprietary PHY types that are developed by an independent hardware vendor (IHV).

The dot11_phy_type_IHV_start enumerator value is valid only when the miniport driver is operating in Extensible Station (ExtSTA) mode.

dot11_phy_type_IHV_end Specifies the end of the range that is used to define proprietary PHY types that are developed by an IHV.

The dot11_phy_type_IHV_end enumerator value is valid only when the miniport driver is operating in ExtSTA mode.

Remarks

An IHV can assign a value for its proprietary PHY types from dot11_phy_type_IHV_start through dot11_phy_type_IHV_end. The IHV must assign a unique number from this range for each of its proprietary PHY types.
