    DESCRIPTION

           Iwlist is used to display some additional information from  a  wireless
           network interface that is not displayed by iwconfig(8).  The main argu-
           ment is used to select a category of information,  iwlist  displays  in
           detailed  form  all  information  related  to  this category, including
           information already shown by iwconfig(8).
    
    
    

    PARAMETERS

           scan[ning]
                  Give the list of Access Points and Ad-Hoc cells  in  range,  and
                  optionally a whole bunch of information about them (ESSID, Qual-
                  ity, Frequency,  Mode...).  The  type  of  information  returned
                  depends on what the card supports.
                  Triggering  scanning  is  a privileged operation (root only) and
                  normal users can only read left-over scan results.  By  default,
                  the way scanning is done (the scope of the scan) is dependant on
                  the card and card settings.
                  This command takes optional arguments, however most drivers will
                  ignore  those.  The  option essid is used to specify a scan on a
                  specific ESSID. With some card/driver, this enables to see  hid-
                  den  networks.  The option last does not trigger a scan and read
                  left-over scan results.
    
           freq[uency]/channel
                  Give the list of available frequencies in  the  device  and  the
                  number  of defined channels. Please note that usually the driver
                  returns the total number of channels and  only  the  frequencies
                  available  in the present locale, so there is no one-to-one map-
                  ping between frequencies displayed and channel numbers.
    
           rate/bit[rate]
                  List the bit-rates supported by the device.
    
           keys/enc[ryption]
                  List the encryption key sizes supported and list all the encryp-
                  don't support it.
                  Some drivers may use this command to return a specific  list  of
                  Peers  or  Access  Points,  such  as  the  list of Peers associ-
                  ated/registered with the card. See your driver documentation for
                  details.
    
           event  List the wireless events supported by the device.
    
           auth   List the WPA authentication parametes curently set.
    
           wpa[keys]
                  List all the WPA encryption keys set in the device.
    
           genie  List  the  Generic  Information Elements set in the device (used
                  for WPA support).
    
           modu[lation]
                  List the modulations supported by the device and the modulations
                  currently enabled.
    
           --version
                  Display the version of the tools, as well as the recommended and
                  current Wireless Extensions version for the tool and the various
                  wireless interfaces.
    
           --help Display short help message.
