What a nightmare

Hi, I have to get the signal strength of the connected wireless access point
on an XP box.
I can iterate through all wireless access points and get the signal strength
of each (using WMI), but don't know which is the connected one.
I don't care if I have to use any language including C++ or any technology
(WMI or another) to do this, I've been at this for a few days now and don't
find it on the Web, and the WMI newsgroups are dead.

Thanks.

1. What is WRAPI?

WRAPI 2.0 consists of a set of wireless LAN monitoring tools built for
WindowsXP-based systems. The WRAPI software library (wrapi.dll) allows
applications running in userspace on mobile end stations to query
information about the IEEE 802.11 network they are attached to. WRAPI
works with any IEEE 802.11b wireless network hardware vendor.

Hope it helps,

Hi Guys, thanks for the responses. I think I have it solved (hopefully, time
will tell).
