Description

iwconfig.py intends to be a drop-in replacement for iwconfig(8), but uses the pythonwifi module to implement its functionality in pure Python. See the iwconfig(8) man page for more detail about what iwconfig.py can do.

But, at this time, this program does not work well (if at all).

The compatitibilty of specific operations iwconfig.py has with iwconfig(8) are listed below.
