I am building a service for Windows XP SP 2 and similar, which have the
built-in Wireless connection manager. The service should start its work
every time the user gets a new Wireless connection (let us assume that
802.1x authentication is disabled for this connection). I could poll
the network status often enough to keep track of the connection, but
isn't it a ridiculous waist of the CPU? Is there some system
notification that I could receive whenever a connection is established?

The links suggested don't appear to work any more and this semis to be and
age old problem with windows CE. We have a similar situation where we need
to get web page from server when device is turned on. But WiFi card is not
connected and Wininet.dll thinks everything is copasetic till it tries to
get the page. Have tried suggestion from Televideo (TeleCLIENT), witch is
to look for driver then see if we have valid IP, but this tends to plow out
the Wininet.dll when the system is still coming up. More then likely do to
the fact you have to call IOCTL wall network is connection. Tried Microsoft
suggestion with is to look for not connected, but only works for wired
network connection. So has any one been able to salve this in a manner that
do's not blow out any network stack parts or Wininet.dll?
