Wifi Management on XP (SP2/SP3),
Wifi support on Vista is fine, bu is half baked. only gets you part of the way there (e.g. network scanning). From what I’ve read (and tried), the 802.11 NDIS drivers on XP will not allow you to configure a wireless connection. You have to use the Native Wifi API in order to do this. (Please, correct me if I’m wrong here.) Applications like have helped me to understand the APIs, but InSSIDer is just a scanner and is not designed to configure Wifi networks.
So, the question is: where can I find some code examples (C# or C++) that deal with the configuration of Wifi networks on XP — e.g. profile creation and connection management?
I should note that this is a XP Embedded application on a closed system where we can’t use the built-in Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC). We have to build all Wifi management functionality into our .NET application.
Yes, I’ve Googled myself blue. It seems that someone should have a solution to this problem, but I can’t find it. That’s why I’m asking here.
