To work with wireless connection, APs i suggest that you need to understand how wireless connections work, i.e., 802.11 connections, then you can work with OID calls which are used to work with wireless network adapters, which adhere to NDIS specification given by Microsoft.

Microsoft has also provided a sample intermediate driver named NDISUIO, which works with wireless network adapters. If you wish you work with NDIS OID calls, you can make the calls directly using DLLImport (.Net Interop).

You can go through to get started.

Hope it helps
