Marvell WLAN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

               we are using Marvell WLAN (Wince 6.0)for our project.It is working fine.But what i want is to write an application for turning ON/OFF WLAN module.What is the procedure to do this?

            I wrote an application.but the problem is that , while loading the image i have to load the WLAN driver and after that only i am able to turn ON/OFF the WLAN.It i disable the WLAN driver in the image and load it, i am not able to turn ON/OFF the module using application.

            Is there any registry settings to be done for simply disabling the WLAN driver? or is there any sample application available in website to do this

  • One way would be to run an application at startup which powers down the WLAN.  Yes it will be powered up for a second or two.

    Otherwise, you should check with the driver vendor to see if the driver supports loading in a low power state.  I am guessing that it does not.

  • Hello WS_2010,

    You can try "IOCTL_NDIS_BIND_ADAPTER" and "IOCTL_NDIS_UNBIND_ADAPTER" DeviceIoControl requests to ON/OFF the WLAN from the application.

    Please go through the following liks...
