WiFi utility questions...



  • Hi!

    I'm new to the Omega2 and new to OpenWRT / LEDE. I have poked through FAqs, tutorials, and this forum, but I'm running into (mostly) dead-ends.

    I would like to use the Omega2 to do two things (in preparation for additional tasks after connection):

    (1) Scan for wireless access points and report/log their RSSIs.
    (2) report the RSSI if associated stations.

    A couple issues:

    (1) The "iwinfo <dev> scan" command returns "Scanning not possible."
    (2) the "iwinfo <dev> assoclist" command returns "No information available."

    Any help or direction is greatly appreciated!

    Just to clarify, are you trying to call the commands literally like that? It should be iwinfo ra0 scan, the <dev> is a placeholder and just refers to the WiFi-device you wish to use.

    I am using the command with "ra0", no the placeholder. Using the placeholder would get ...no such file" result.
