How to retrieve network adapter and locality information (XAML)


Location data is expressed either as a BSSID if the network adapter media type is Wireless LAN, or as a tuple <ChassisId, Port Number> if the network adapter type is Ethernet. The data is represented according to the LLDP protocol.



Gets a LanIdentifierData object containing locality identification information for the network adapter's connection.


Gets the adapter GUID that identifies the network adapter to associate with the locality information.


Gets a LanIdentifierData object containing the port ID from the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) locality information for an Ethernet type network adapter.
