Native 802.11 Extensible AP OIDs

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 Native 802.11 Extensible AP (access point) object identifiers (OIDs) are applicable only to miniport drivers that support the Native 802.11 Extensible AP operation mode. For more information about the ExtAP operation mode, see Extensible Access Point Operation Mode.

Note

The Native 802.11 Extensible AP operation mode is available in Windows 7 and later versions of the Windows operating systems.

In the following table, these abbreviations are used to specify the requirements for Native 802.11 Extensible AP (ExtAP) OID query (Q), and set (S), and NDIS 6.0 method (M) requests:

  • R
    Indicates that support for the object is required. The miniport driver must not fail set or query requests for the object by returning the status code NDIS_STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED from its MiniportOidRequest function.
  • C
    Indicates that support for the object is conditionally required for certain hardware or software functionality. If the 802.11 station supports the functionality, the miniport driver must support query or set requests for the object. Otherwise, the miniport driver must fail the set or query requests by returning NDIS_STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED from its MiniportOidRequest function.
  • O
    Indicates that support for the object is optional. The miniport driver can either support query or set requests for the object, or the driver can fail the request by returning NDIS_STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED from its MiniportOidRequest function.
  • X
    Indicates that the specified state of a Native 802.11 operating mode supports a set request for the object. If the miniport driver is not in the specified state, the miniport driver must fail the set request by returning NDIS_STATUS_INVALID_STATE from its MiniportOidRequest function.

OIDs that support query requests can be queried from any state of the miniport driver's operation mode.
