    Unfortunately, a standard OID for this still does not seem to exist.
    So, every OEM uses proprietary controls.
    You can also disable the adapter using SetupDi API.

    IOCTL_NDIS_UNBIND_ADAPTER is a Platform builder command.

    Is there a way to turn 802.11 on and off at the application programing level
    or do you need to use the lower level commands and tools?

    I would be intersed in something that is part of the SDK's that are part of
    visual studio?

    I remember looking into this about 7 months ago and I came to the conclusion
    that this would need to be done at a lower level.

    All the best,
