    SYNOPSIS

           iwevent
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           iwevent displays Wireless Events received through the RTNetlink socket.
           Each line displays the specific Wireless Event which describes what has
           happened on the specified wireless interface.
           This command doesn't take any arguments.
    
    
    

    DISPLAY

           There are two classes of Wireless Events.
    
           The first class is events related to a change of wireless  settings  on
           the  interface  (typically  done  through  iwconfig or a script calling
           iwconfig).  Only settings that could result in a disruption of  connec-
           tivity  are reported. The events currently reported are changing one of
           the following setting :
                Network ID
                ESSID
                Frequency
                Mode
                Encryption
           All those events will be generated on all wireless  interfaces  by  the
           kernel wireless subsystem (but only if the driver has been converted to
           the new driver API).
    
           The second class of events are events generated by the  hardware,  when
           something happens or a task has been finished. Those events include :
    
           New Access Point/Cell address
                  The  interface  has joined a new Access Point or Ad-Hoc Cell, or
                  lost its association with it. This is the same address  that  is
                  reported by iwconfig.
    
           Scan request completed
                  A  scanning  request has been completed, results of the scan are
                  available (see iwlist).
    
           Tx packet dropped
                  A packet directed at this address has been dropped  because  the
                  interface  believes  this  node  doesn't answer anymore (usually
                  maximum of MAC level retry exceeded). This is usually  an  early
                  indication  that  the node may have left the cell or gone out of
                  range, but it may be due to fading or excessive contention.
    
           Custom driver event
                  Event specific to the driver. Please check the driver documenta-
                  tion.
    
           Registered node
                  The   interface  has  successfully  registered  a  new  wireless
    
           nation. Please refer to driver documentation for details on  when  they
           are generated, and use iwlist(8) to check what the driver supports.
