Simple (hopefully) walkthrough required for a wireless dev noob

Hey everyone,

   I've never done anything with 802.11 development before.  I'm working in windows XP with C++ in the Visual Studio 2005 IDE.  I'm putting together a QA auditing tool that has to test all the subsystems of a newly manufactured machine, including WLAN functionality.  In order to test said functionality, I'm given the name of a wireless network in a .ini file.  How, then, once I've got the name of the network, do I go about accessing that network?  All I have to do is connect to the AP, renew the machines IP from DHCP, and then disconnect.

   I've done extensive google-hunting and msdn-browsing, but to no avail.  All I find are platform-specific Win CE libraries, undocumented 3rd-party header files, and vague, hand-waving talk of networking IOCTLs.  

   Little help?

Cheers,
       Aaron Brown

Hi,

You may want to look at the WRAPI web page,

and the resource available to download:

Cool, I'll give those libraries a look.  It looks like just getting the windows DDK might provide me the tools I need.  Thanks for your help.
