wireless



SYNOPSIS

       iwconfig
       iwpriv -a


DESCRIPTION

       The  Wireless Extensions is an API allowing you manipulate
       Wireless LAN networking interfaces.  It is composed  of  a
       variety of tools and configuration files. It is documented
       in more details in the Linux Wireless LAN Howto.
       The Wireless Tools are use to change configuration on  the
       fly, to get statistics and diagnose those interfaces. They
       are described in their own man page (see below).
       Wireless configuration is specific to each Linux distribu­
       tion. This man page will contain in the future the config­
       uration procedure for a few common distributions  (when  I
       get  the  necessary  info  from them). For the time being,
       check the various files included with the  Wireless  Tools
       package.
