Iwspy is used to set a list of addresses to monitor in a wireless network interface and to read back quality of link information for each of those. This information is the same as the one available in /proc/net/wireless : quality of the link, signal strength and noise level.This information is updated each time a new packet is received, so each address of the list adds some overhead in the driver.
It is a well known fact that wireless connections are by nature insecure. Your chances of being snooped on and valuable data stolen from you is very high, even in the most secure setups. It's even more likely in a public setting such as an internet cafe or a wireless hotspot. That is why good solutions are needed to ensure that your wireless connections are as secure as they can be.
Assuming you have managed to find a wireless card that is working well with your Linux distribution, or perhaps you just settled for a hack-n’-hope solution with NDISWrapper, you need to settle on an application that you can use to connect to your wireless network.
Apple has made it as difficult as they could to sync the iPod Touch and iPhone to any application other than iTunes. As a result, syncing an iPod Touch or iPhone in Linux is still no easy task.
While most basic hardware support for GNU/Linux is improving constantly, wireless support remains dismal. Few manufacturers make an effort to support the operating system, or to publicize what support they have. Moreover, the components of wireless devices change so fast that one version of a device may offer support while a second version doesn't -- even though both versions share the same model number.
In setting up their wireless connection for the first time, Im discovering many individuals having problems connecting through Network Manager or other GUI wireless connection tools. In fact my Network Manager is intermittently buggy, connecting sometimes and not others. This guide benefits all users in case the GUI tools are not working, and is useful for testing a wireless connection during initial installation of wireless drivers since it provides for good debugging output.
WiFi Radar is a Python/PyGTK2 utility for managing WiFi profiles.It enables you to scan for available networks and create profiles for your preferred networks.

Today I have mainly been attempting to create a very light installation of Ubuntu on an old Pentium III. I started by installing a base system with the Ubuntu alternative install disk. After the base system was installed I then tried to configure my wireless card from the command line.
With the new release of Ubuntu 7.10 I figured I should go back and revisit some of my macbook specific tutorials. Today I’ll touch on configuring / enabling wireless on the macbook (second-gen) in Ubuntu 7.10.
WiFi Radar is a sweet Ubuntu Application to set up and configure your wireless connections through an easy, intuitive inferface.
Having problems with your wireless internet conection? No probs, here is the solution for you.
No other hardware nowadays supports GNU/Linux as weakly as wireless network adapters. Between the constant release of new models and major vendors who are uninterested in supporting the operating system, free drivers for wireless cards are next to impossible to reverse engineer. Nor can you find many retailers willing to customize laptops as readily as they do workstations. In this situation, ndiswrapper and the Broadcom firmware cutter provide a functional, if not always satisfactory, solution.
