How to remove NativeWifi Filter from NDIS 6.0 stack?

Hello, I'm trying to programmatically disconnect an NDIS driver from the
Vista 'NativeWiFi Filter' service (temporarily). I'm using
'INetCfgBindingPath' but the 'Enable()' method does not seem to work. That
is, when I try to DISABLE the binding path between my NDIS driver and the
service, it returns success BUT it does NOT actually disable it. My code
works properly for other services and protocols. Is there something special
I need to do to control the binding to the 'NativeWiFi service'? Is there
another way to temporarily remove this service from the NDIS stack?

Thank you,
Rick

RE: How to remove NativeWifi Filter from NDIS 6.0 stack?

The NativeWiFi filter is w/o a doubt one of the boldest things i have ever
seen. It picks off your oid requests, intercepts your packets before they
reach your protocol drivers, rendering almost all previous wifi software
completely useless unless they move to the new windows based api. I don't
know how you can remove it on a per binding basis but i do know you can turn
it off completely by doing a Net stop NativeWifiP on the service... but that
probably isnt a great solution either. If you figure this one out, please
let me know.
