Does this API work with non-WZC drivers?

I've gotten the ManagedWiFi API to work with the standard Windows wireless network connection stuff.  But I have a Dell laptop that has the Dell Wireless WLAN card utility running the wireless connection and when that's going, I get this error:

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The service has not been started
   at NativeWifi.Wlan.ThrowIfError(Int32 win32ErrorCode)
   at NativeWifi.WlanClient..ctor()
   at LessNetworks.Scoop.ConnectionInfo.WapConnectionInfo.Update() in C:\Development\Scoop\trunk\Scoop\ConnectionInfo\WapConnectionInfo.cs:line 28

This is dependent on using the WINDOWS wifi stuff and not any old wifi management utility, isn't it?  Is there any way to get info about wireless connections regardless of what's managing that connection?  Do I have to go through NDIS or something?
