wireless - Wireless Tools and Wireless Extensions
The Wireless Extensions is an API allowing you manipulate Wireless LAN networking inter-
faces. It is composed of a variety of tools and configuration files. It is documented in
more details in the Linux Wireless LAN Howto.
The Wireless Tools are use to change configuration on the fly, to get statistics and diag-
nose those interfaces. They are described in their own man page (see below).
Wireless configuration is specific to each Linux distribution. This man page will contain
in the future the configuration procedure for a few common distributions (when I get the
necessary info from them). For the time being, check the various files included with the
Wireless Tools package.
Debian 3.0 (and later) has integrated wireless configuration in their network scripts.
