C# Wireless Protocol Enumeration
I want to enumerate whether my wireless network is connected, what protocol it is using and if possible the ssid.  I would like to do this in C#.  I have had a quick look at WMI but it doesnt seem to offer what Im after, any help?

    After some hesitation I have decided to answer your question. This file supposedly will give you access to WIFI via some API's. Please use it only for good. Knowledge is a dangerous thing and I don't want to read about you in the papers.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the concern, I have no interest in using it to hack, I just want information on my own connection!
