DESCRIPTION
       The  Wireless Extensions is an API allowing you manipulate Wireless LAN
       networking interfaces.  It is composed of a variety of tools  and  con-
       figuration files. It is documented in more detail in the Linux Wireless
       LAN Howto.
       The Wireless Tools are used to change the configuration of wireless LAN
       networking  interfaces  on the fly, to get their current configuration,
       to get statistics and diagnose them. They are described  in  their  own
       man page, see below for references.
       Wireless configuration is specific to each Linux distribution. This man
       page will contain in the future the configuration procedure for  a  few
       common  distributions.  For  the  time  being, check the file DISTRIBU-
       TIONS.txt included with the Wireless Tools package.

       In Debian 3.0 (and later) you can  configure  wireless  LAN  networking
       devices using the network configuration tool ifupdown(8).

SuSE 8.0
       SuSE  8.0  (and  later)  has integrated wireless configuration in their
       network scripts.
