      The Wireless Tools are a set of tools allowing to manipulate the Wireless Extensions. They use a textual interface and are rather crude, but aim to support the full Wireless Extension. There are many other tools you can use with Wireless Extensions, however Wireless Tools is the reference implementation.
      
       * iwconfig manipulate the basic wireless parameters
       * iwlist allow to initiate scanning and list frequencies, bit-rates, encryption keys...
       * iwspy allow to get per node link quality
       * iwpriv allow to manipulate the Wireless Extensions specific to a driver (private)
       * ifrename allow to name interfaces based on various static criteria
