This set of APIs enables developers to create applications that can manage wireless LAN profiles and connectivity on Microsoft Windows XP SP2 building on the native wireless functionality in Windows that is called Wireless Zero Configuration service. The exposed connection and disconnection API elements can be used to override the automatic configuration and connection logic. This in turn will enable third-party wireless client applications to support usage scenarios that are not natively supported with Windows wireless functionality. These scenarios include providing seamless and automatic roaming between different wireless media types. For example, between Wireless LAN (WLAN) and Wireless WAN (WWAN). These scenarios also include automatic provisioning of wireless computers for public Wi-Fi hotspots usage. This API is a subset of the Wireless LAN APIs introduced in Windows Vista. These APIs are known as the Native Wi-Fi APIs. This means developers can write wireless client applications that work on Windows XP SP2 and on Windows Vista.
