pcurtis:
Anyone got some pointers or code on how to connect to a Wifi AP?

Thanks.

500 hits and not even a hint  :(

Probably the Holly Grail of programming.

PascalDragon:
You'll probably have to look at the Native Wifi API provided by Windows.

Mainly that nobody has a need for it as the WiFi is usually set up by the user and applications are not supposed to touch it.

Nevermind that a WiFi AP (=Access Point) is basically just a "wide range" Antenna, extending your WiFi-Router and/or controlled by a Wifi-controller.
It has everything to do with networking and nothing to do with any Apps/Programs requiring networking.
Though, i admit there are exceptions to the rule, GoPro's QuikCapture comes to mind (GoPro's own App for iPad/Tablet/Whatever) where you can directly connect to your camera from within the app, using Bluetooth, Wifi, whatever's available

I just want to learn how to do it with the API
