    Command:

    iwpriv

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           iwpriv [interface]
           iwpriv interface private-command [private-parameters]
           iwpriv interface private-command [I] [private-parameters]
           iwpriv interface --all
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Iwpriv is the companion tool to iwconfig(8).  Iwpriv deals with parame-
           ters  and setting specific to each driver (as opposed to iwconfig which
           deals with generic ones).
    
           Without any argument, iwpriv list the available private commands avail-
           able  on  each  interface,  and the parameters that they require. Using
           this information, the user may apply those interface specific  commands
           on the specified interface.
    
           In  theory, the documentation of each device driver should indicate how
           to use those interface specific commands and their effect.
    
    
    

    PARAMETERS

           private-command [private-parameters]
                  Execute the specified private-command on the interface.
                  The command may optionally take or require  arguments,  and  may
                  display  information. Therefore, the command line parameters may
                  or may not be needed and should match the command  expectations.
                  The  list  of commands that iwpriv displays (when called without
                  argument) should give you some hints about those parameters.
                  However you should refer to the device driver documentation  for
                  information on how to properly use the command and the effect.
    
           private-command [I] [private-parameters]
                  Idem,  except  that I (an integer) is passed to the command as a
                  Token Index.  Only some command will use the Token  Index  (most
                  will  ignore  it),  and the driver documentation should tell you
                  when it's needed.
    
           -a/--all
                  Execute and display all the private commands that don't take any
                  arguments (i.e.  read only).
    
    
    

    DISPLAY

           For each device which support private commands, iwpriv will display the
           list of private commands available.
    
           This include the name of the private command, the number  or  arguments
           that may be set and their type, and the number or arguments that may be
           display and their type.
    
           For example, you may have the following display :
           eth0      Available private ioctl :
                     setqualthr (89F0) : set   1 byte & get   0
    
           iwconfig(8), iwlist(8), iwevent(8), iwspy(8), wireless(7).
