Can I view detected WiFi networks details (like signal strength, encryption etc.) in command line? The more detailed - the better.
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
Assuming your wireless is
wlan0, of course. If you're not sure,
iwconfig should tell you.
Under Linux, you can use the
iw* series of commands to configure and display information about wireless networks:
- iwconfig - configure a wireless network interface
- iwlist - Get more detailed wireless information from a wireless interface
- iwpriv - configure optionals (private) parameters of a wireless network interface
- iw - show / manipulate wireless devices and their configuration
Here is a rather comprehensive list. One particularly nice way is:
watch -n 1 cat /proc/net/wireless
Another option would be:
sudo apt-get install network-manager nmcli dev wifi
Actually are all commands (
iwlist, ...) replaced with newest tool
iw. to show signal and other info:
iw wlan0 link
wlan0 is interface name.
