Consider the following scenario:
- You are using a computer that is running Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
- There are 300 or more 802.11 (wireless) access points available, as might be seen in a test lab.
When there are lots of access points, an NDIS driver may report that uTotalNumOfBytes of OID_DOT11_ENUM_BSS_LIST is larger than 60,000 bytes.
This issue is not seen in a typical environment and has been observed only in a laboratory environment. NDIS drivers should limit the number of bytes that they report so that the total for uTotalNumOfBytes of OID_DOT11_ENUM_BSS_LIST stays under 60,000.
This situation occurs only in stress environments.
