RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for wireless (redhat section 7)

WIRELESS(7)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			      WIRELESS(7)

NAME
       wireless - Wireless Tools and Wireless Extensions

SYNOPSIS
       iwconfig
       iwpriv -a

DESCRIPTION
       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
       Debian 3.0 (and later) has integrated wireless configuration in their network scripts.

       File : /etc/network/interfaces

       Form : wireless_<function> <value>
	      wireless_essid Home
	      wireless_mode ad_hoc

       See also :
	      /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wireless-tool
	      /usr/share/doc/wireless.##/README.Debian

ORIGINAL PCMCIA SCRIPTS
       If  you	are using the original configuration scripts from the Pcmcia package, you can use
       this method.

       File : /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts

       Form : *,*,*,*)
		  ESSID="MY_ESSID"
		  MODE="Managed"
		  ;;
