Tools for manipulating Linux Wireless Extensions

Wireless Tools are used to manipulate the now-deprecated Linux Wireless Extensions; consider using iw instead. The Wireless Extension was an interface allowing you to set Wireless LAN specific parameters and get the specific stats. It is deprecated in favor the nl80211 interface.


Install the latest version of wireless-tools as follows:

guix install wireless-tools

Or install a particular version:

guix install wireless-tools@30.pre9

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
