One of our electricians at work has been using visual basic 6.0 to program connections to a serial port. He now needs the ability to program a small application that will allow him to send signals over a wireless access point. I'm not too familiar with programming and he says that visual basic 6.0 doesn't have that ability.  What new programming software, hopefully visual basic related, has that capability?  
please & thank you

I suggest that he looks into the Winsock control if he has to work over a network.

I haven't worked in VB6 for a while now, but I suspect all you need is access to the right library. It appears that the Native Wifi API is what you are after.

As far as newer programming, VB.NET is the newest incarnation of VB.

Depending on the application, you might be able to use the ActiveX MSXML2.HTTP object.
