Well that depends on what the DLL is for.  If it is an MFC extension DLL, i.e. one that will need MFC in it, then you would use the MFC DLL AppWizard.  If you just want a regular windows DLL, then I would use the Win32 Dynamic Link Library.  

But overall you can use either.  I personally would rather write it from scratch so it is easier to see what is going on.  See http://www.flipcode.com/tutorials/tut_dll01.shtml for how.

And regarding windows socket capability, then that may be an idea, although I personally am not an expert on wireless comms.

If you don't know how to make and use a DLL, I would get that sorted before you try what looks like a pretty hefty task.

It would also be cool if you closed some of those 27 other questions you have open too :)
