The Native Wifi automatic configuration component configures, connects to, and disconnects from wireless networks. Native Wifi can store profiles on the networks it interacts with in the form of XML documents.
The Native Wifi API is designed for C/C++ developers. Programmers should be familiar with wireless networking concepts and terminology.
The Native Wifi component requires clients running Windows Vista, Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3), or Wireless LAN API for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2).
