Details

If you are running with no security or WEP security, then using this API call is the same as checking wln.associationstate . For WPA1-PSK and WPA2-PSK security modes, the mere fact that wln.associationstate returns 1- PL_WLN_ASSOCIATED does not indicate association success. This is because WPA1-PSK and WPA2-PSK additionally involve a complex exchange of "handshake" messages. Only after the handshake is completed that the association is finished and wln_check_association() will return 1- PL_WLN_ASSOCIATED.
