I would like to know if it will possible to provide wireless tools such as iwconfig and iwspy for the NOKIA N 810 ? Thank you
*** Bug 4652 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
There is a wireless-tools package provided in the tools repository (<http://maemo.org/development/tools/>) which includes iwconfig and iwspy, but according to <http://maemo.org/development/tools/doc/diablo/wireless-tools/> iwspy isn't functional at the moment. Valid request, confirming (also resetting priority to default).
Confirming for real this time, sorry for the noise
Sorry i do not understand, iwspy is functional or not at this moment ? Thank you for your answer
(In reply to comment #4) > Sorry i do not understand, iwspy is functional or not at this moment ? It isn't: Nokia-N800-43-7:~# iwspy wlan0 wlan0 Interface doesn't support wireless statistic collection This is probably a driver (rather than tools) issue, but I'll leave the product/component selection to someone more qualified to say.
Ok thank you Yes probably it is the driver which do not support statistic collection Is there any other possibility to collect information about channels ? Thank you for your help
(In reply to comment #6) > Is there any other possibility to collect information about channels ? I'm not sure I understand you correctly, but iwlist does work.
iwlist provides just available channels, but iwspy provides power (in dbm) of messages received from a defined node in the network. I need this functionality. Is it possible to modify the driver to support the iwspy command ? Thank you for your help
AFAIK the best you can get at the moment is the figures provided in /proc/net/wireless. If you're feeling really brave you could try the stlc45xx driver (<http://stlc45xx.garage.maemo.org/>), but I have no idea if iwspy works with that either.
Is this still an issue for Fremantle/Maemo5? It's unlikely that Diablo will see any fixes in this area.

No change: Nokia-N900-51-1:~# iwspy wlan0 wlan0 Interface doesn't support wireless statistic collection Though note that this is a completely different chip with a softMAC driver, and iwspy support has been removed at the mac80211 layer (<http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=51e779f0daa5c712439d37b907d58543e4fcf12a>).
