This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I would like to get AP signal strength via C program but I am not sure where to start. I am currently using orinoco drivers for Linksys PC wireless card v.3.
Is there any way I can get the signal strength that we get via 'iwconfig' ? I would prefer not to load hostap drivers .. but if its the only way or the simpler way to go then I would go ahead and do it. (I dont know how to get it through hostap too ... but I guess some documentation can be found on the hostap website)
Please let me know if there is anything important I missed.
by default,it is there in our system.In my Redhat 9 based system,i am having all wireless commands.Which system are you using?
If it not there,then you can download wireless_tools.0.28 tools package,go through the README and INSTALL files,then you will be gettinng those commands.Then load your driver file for that device and then you can try the above mentioned commands.
