       Iwlist  is used to display some large chunk of information
       from a wireless network interface 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 num­
              ber of channels and only the frequencies  available
              in  the  present  locale, so there is no one to one
              mapping between frequencies displayed  and  channel

              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

              Give the  list  of  Access  Points  in  range,  and
              optionally  the  quality of link to them. This fea­
              ture is obsolte and  now  deprecated  in  favor  of
              scanning  support  (above),  and most drivers don't
              support it.
              Some drivers may use this command to return a  spe­
              cific  list  of Peers or Access Points, such as the
              list of Peers associated/registered with the  card.
              See your driver documentation for details.

       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.
