You need to install wireless-tools if you haven't already. You can get it from the web, or usually from your distro's packages as was suggested.

Assuming that wireless tools are installed:
It's probably in /sbin which means that it's not in the users path by default. In Red Hat, for example, su will give you root privileges but not leave your current directory nor invoke root's path. You'd need to type /sbin/iwconfig.

su - however will put you into the root dir and give you root's path. In that case, iwconfig would work fine.
