The Native 802.11 miniport driver operating in Extensible Station (ExtSTA) mode returns statistical counters when the OID_DOT11_STATISTICS object identifier (OID) is queried. The data type defined for this OID is the DOT11_STATISTICS structure, which returns the following types of statistics:

The miniport driver must unconditionally set all of the counters in the DOT11_STATISTICS structure to zero, including MAC-layer and PHY-layer counters, when one of the following occurs:

  • The driver's

  • MiniportInitializeEx

  • function is called.

  • The driver's MiniportRequest function is called with a method request of the OID_DOT11_RESET_REQUEST, regardless of the type of reset operation specified in the method request.
