    Wireless Provisioning Services
    Updated: August 18, 2004
    Wireless Provisioning Services (WPS) enable the discovery of and connection
    to wireless networks. WPS enhancements are included in Microsoft Windows XP
    Service Pack 2 (SP2) and under consideration for Windows Server™ 2003
    Service Pack 1 (SP1).

    WPS extends the wireless client software included with Windows XP and the
    Internet Authentication Service (IAS) included with Windows Server 2003 to
    allow for a consistent and automated configuration process when connecting
    to public wireless hotspots or private wireless networks that provide guest
    access to the Internet.

    The WPS APIs allow for the pre-provisioning of network information to
    connect to these networks and the provisioning of network settings to
    connect to private wireless networks.

    To help driver developers who create network components that can take
    advantage of WPS capabilities, Microsoft is providing a Driver Development
    Kit (DDK) preview, including these components:

    • WPS documentation preview from the Windows DDK

    • Netprov.h header and related files
