wireless - Wireless Tools and Wireless Extensions


   iwpriv -a


   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 detail in the Linux
   Wireless LAN Howto.
   The Wireless Tools are used to change the configuration of wireless LAN
   networking  interfaces  on the fly, to get their current configuration,
   to get statistics and diagnose them. They are described  in  their  own
   man page, see below for references.
   Wireless configuration is specific to each Linux distribution. This man
   page will contain in the future the configuration procedure for  a  few
   common   distributions.   For   the   time   being,   check   the  file
   DISTRIBUTIONS.txt included with the Wireless Tools package.


   In Debian 3.0 (and later) you can  configure  wireless  LAN  networking
   devices using the network configuration tool ifupdown(8).

   File : /etc/network/interfaces

   Form : wireless-<function> <value>
          wireless-essid Home
          wireless-mode Ad-Hoc

SuSE 8.0

   SuSE  8.0  (and  later)  has integrated wireless configuration in their
   network scripts.

   Tool : Yast2

   File : /etc/sysconfig/network/wireless

   Form : WIRELESS_<function>=<value>

   See also :
          man ifup
          info scpm


   If you are using the original configuration  scripts  from  the  Pcmcia
   package, you can use this method.

   File : /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts

   Form : *,*,*,*)
