How to list Access Points?


I have gotten my Truemobile 1300 mini-pci wifi card working on my Dell Inspiron 5100, but I can't get the iwlist command to list out the currently available AP's. If there a program or command I can use to list out the AP's available to the card? The only reason I can use the card right now is because I already knew the name of wireless router.

I used ndiswrapper to load the driver for the card.

Thanks for the help.

I use the command
# iwlist wlan0 ?

? = accesspoints, scanning, etc

I get a message that reads something like "This car does not support list functions" (Sorry I don't have the right syntax, just installed Fedora C2 right now).
