I have a task to complete and I'm not sure how!

Posted 04 August 2013 - 11:51 AM

Hello dreamincode community!
I have been given a task to create a VB program that detects and connects to wireless networks. The program would ask for a password if the router requires one to connect and try to connect with that password (like the default windows wifi connection tray icon does in the bottom left of the screen, just in a windows for application!).
Does anybody know how to do this? I'm kind of a newbie at networking on VB!
Thanks
Rodit

A few things.. first is this really VB6 or is it VB.NET? Are you using a Visual Studios 20XX IDE?

Second - who gave you this task? It is quite a far throw away from any newbie work.

Third.. applications don't connect to routers or wifi networks, right? I mean that's all handled on the OS/hardware level.
