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 OID_DOT11_VIRTUAL_STATION_CAPABILITY object identifier (OID) requests that the NIC driver return the capabilities of a virtual 802.11 station.

Support for this OID is optional. If the driver supports a Virtual Station MAC, it must also support this OID.

The data type for this OID is the DOT11_EXTSTA_ATTRIBUTES structure.

The DOT11_EXTSTA_ATTRIBUTES structure that this OID returns must not contain any embedded pointers. The memory that this structure uses should be contiguous, and any pointers should point within this contiguous memory.

The miniport driver must report support for the standard DOT11_AUTH_ALGO_80211_OPEN and DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_NONE authentication and cipher algorithms. The miniport driver can additionally report one or more IHV-defined authentication/cipher algorithm pairs. The operating system will block any IHV-defined network profiles that attempt to set the DOT11_AUTH_ALGO_80211_OPEN/ DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_NONE authentication/cipher algorithm pair on the virtual station adapter.



Available in Windows 7 and later versions of the Windows operating systems.
