VOID NdisGetNextBuffer(


Pointer to the current buffer descriptor.
Pointer to a caller-supplied variable in which this function returns a pointer to the buffer descriptor, if any, that follows CurrentBufferin the buffer descriptor chain.


This function returns NULL at NextBufferif CurrentBufferpoints to the last buffer descriptor in the chain.

A driver usually calls this function after it calls the NdisQueryPacketor the NdisGetFirstBufferFromPacketfunction.

A driver can also call the NdisQueryBufferfunction to get details about a buffer descriptor that this function finds.

This function does not perform any synchronization. Therefore, a caller must handle any synchronization issues internally if more than one driver function can access buffer descriptors chained to a packet simultaneously.

A driver that calls this function can run at any IRQL.
