    Please throw some light on which API/IOCTL should my application use so that
    it can receive PnP (insertion and removal of USB n/w cards) notifications?

  2. Hi,

    MSDN describes a service called 'Device Management' that will provide
    notification of device arrival and removal via a windows message
    WM_DEVICECHANGE. There is an API, RegisterDeviceNotification, that should
    do the trick. Here is the URL to the documentation in MSDN:

    Good luck,
