Miniport Adapter OID Requests
NDIS defines object identifier (OID) values to identify miniport adapter parameters, which include operating parameters such as device characteristics, configurable settings and statistics. For more information about OIDs, see NDIS OIDs.
For NDIS 6.1 and later miniport drivers, NDIS provides a Direct OID Request Interface. The Direct OID request path supports OID requests that are queried or set frequently. The Direct OID Request Interface is optional for NDIS drivers.
For NDIS 6.80 and later miniport drivers, NDIS provides a Synchronous OID Request Interface. The Synchronous OID request path supports OIDs that require synchronization or OIDs that should not be queued by filter drivers, such as RSSv2 OIDs. The Synchronous OID Request Interface is optional for NDIS drivers but is required if the miniport driver advertises support for RSSv2.
