    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  con-
           figuration 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 DISTRIBU-
           TIONS.txt included with the Wireless Tools package.
    
    
    

    DEBIAN 3.0

           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
    
           See also :

                  /usr/share/doc/wireless-tools/README.Debian
    
    
    

    SuSE 8.0

           SuSE  8.0  (and  later)  has integrated wireless configuration in their
           network scripts.
    
           Tool : Yast2
    
           File : /etc/sysconfig/network/wireless
                  /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*
    
           Form : WIRELESS_<function>=<value>
                  WIRELESS_ESSID="Home"
                  WIRELESS_MODE=Ad-Hoc
