tool for configuring Linux wireless devices

This package contains the 'iw' command line tool which allows to configure and show information about wireless devices.

iw is based on the nl80211 kernel interface and supports the majority of fairly recent hardware. The old tool iwconfig, which uses Wireless Extensions interface, is deprecated and it is strongly recommended to switch to iw and nl80211.
