The data type for this OID is the DOT11_AVAILABLE_CHANNEL_LIST structure.

Valid channel numbers are defined in of IEEE Std. 802.11-1997. The NIC should return the available frequency channel list based on its own capability and knowledge of the regulatory domain. The NIC must ensure that any entry in this list does not violate the regulatory domain requirements where the NIC is operating.
