Bruno,

If this is possible (I'm not that familar with this section of the api),
then you will have to make the call to the API through the P/Invoke layer,
or through COM interop, as this functionality is not exposed through .NET.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Most of the time the access point is an independend device in the network,
it's this access point the one who store all the configuration of the
wireless network and your desktop is just a client, maybe, and this is a BIG
maybe you can change the access point configuration remotely using something
like nntp, you have to check the docs of your access point.

Is this what you want?

cheers,

I'm not clear on why you need to do this from code, but yes, you can change
the SSID using the System.Management classes and WMI.
For this, you'll have to connect to the "root\wmi" namespace and change the
attribute "Ndis80211SsId[]" on the WMI class
"MSNdis_80211_ServiceSetIdentifier".
