Extensible Station Indications

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 following table describes the Native 802.11 indications that are applicable to the Extensible Station (ExtSTA) operation mode of the Native 802.11 miniport driver. For more information about this operation mode, see Extensible Station Operation Mode.

The miniport driver can only make these Native 802.11 indications from the operational (OP) state of the ExtSTA operation mode. For more information about this state, see Extensible Station Operating States.

Name Description

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_ASSOCIATION_COMPLETION

The driver makes this indication after the 802.11 station completes an association operation with an access point (AP) or peer station. For more information about this operation, see Association Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_ASSOCIATION_START

The driver makes this indication before the 802.11 station starts an association operation with an AP or peer station. For more information about this operation, see Association Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_CONNECTION_COMPLETION

The driver makes this indication after the 802.11 station completes a connection operation with a basic service set (BSS) network. For more information about this operation, see Connection Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_CONNECTION_START

The driver makes this indication before the 802.11 station starts a connection operation with a BSS network. For more information about this operation, see Connection Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_DISASSOCIATION

The driver makes this indication after the 802.11 station completes a disassociation operation with an AP or peer station. For more information about this operation, see Disassociation Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_LINK_QUALITY

The driver makes this indication whenever the 802.11 station determines the link quality for an association with an AP or peer station that has changed significantly.

For more information about link quality and link quality indications, see Link Quality Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_PHY_STATE_CHANGED

The driver makes this indication whenever the power state changes on a PHY that is supported by the 802.11 station.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_PMKID_CANDIDATE_LIST

The driver makes this indication to request pairwise master key identifiers (PMKIDs) for BSSIDs to which the 802.11 station can potentially roam.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_ROAMING_COMPLETION

The driver makes this indication after the 802.11 station completes a roaming operation with an AP or peer station. For more information about this operation, see Roaming Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_ROAMING_START

The driver makes this indication before the 802.11 station starts a roaming operation with an AP or peer station. For more information about this operation, see Roaming Operations.

NDIS_STATUS_DOT11_TKIPMIC_FAILURE

The driver makes this indication whenever a received packet that has been successfully decrypted by the TKIP cipher algorithm fails the message integrity code (MIC) verification.

NDIS_STATUS_MEDIA_SPECIFIC_INDICATION

The driver makes this indication to notify the IHV Extension DLL. For more information, see IHV-Specific Indications.
