Iwlist is used to display some large chunk of information from a wireless network inter-
face that is not displayed by iwconfig. This is typically list of parameters.
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
mapping between frequencies displayed and channel numbers.
Give the list of Access Points in range, and optionally the quality of link to
them. This feature is obsolte and now deprecated in favor of scanning support
(below), and it will disappear in the future.
Give the list of Access Points and Ad-Hoc cells in range, and optionally a whole
bunch of information about them (ESSID, Quality, Frequency, Mode...). The type of
information returned depend on what the card support.
Triggering scanning is a priviledged operation (root only) and normal users can
only read letf-over scan results. By default, the way scanning is done (the scope
of the scan) will be impacted by the current setting of the driver. Also, this com-
mand is supposed to take extra arguments to control the scanning behaviour, but
this is currently not implemented.
List the bit-rates supported by the device.
List the encryption key sizes supported and display all the encryption keys avail-
ables in the device.
power List the various Power Management attributes and modes of the device.
List the various Transmit Power available on the device.
retry List the transmit retry limits and retry lifetime on the device.
Display the version of the tools, as well as the recommended and current Wireless
Extensions version for the tool and the various wireless interfaces.
