    iwspy does not work

    When I run iwspy on my Suse 9.2 laptop (intel 2200BG wireless) I get this message:

    # iwspy
    lo Interface doesn't support wireless statistic collection

    eth0 Interface doesn't support wireless statistic collection

    eth1 Interface doesn't support wireless statistic collection

    sit0 Interface doesn't support wireless statistic collection



    My wireless interface is eth1, can someone tell me how to fix this?

    Nope, I have the ipw2100 and get the same thing even though everything else works good

    what are you trying to do? Scan for wireless networks?
    if so, try this

    iwlist eth1 scan

    also if the ipw2200 is like the ipw2100 you need to un-accociate the card with an access point for any other networks to show first

    iwconfig eth1 essid none

    Phased out iwspy

    Sorry for resurrecting an old thread.

    It is no longer supported in the kernel.
    They should remove the iwspy command from the wireless-tools package if so...
