    WLAN handling API

    Hey guys,
    I'm trying to write an app that will periodically poll for WiFi networks in range, and perhaps connect to one if the user wishes. I've looked through the Platform SDK and glanced at the DDK, and the only things that look promising are WNet and WPS; I'd really rather not use 3rd party libraries if at all possible. Does anybody know if there's something I've overlooked, or if either of these two APIs is what I'm looking for? Thanks!

    Yeah, I saw it in MSDN earlier and had the same reaction.


    @Kuphryn:
    The purpose of this project is to allow public internet access, but only through the provided software... WiFi was the most obvious decision, simply because *everybody* with a laptop has it already. Do you know of any good resources where I might start from? Thanks.
