Modules - Generic

If you found that you wireless permanently disconnects and you're using NetworkManager try to run: echo "options mac80211 probe_wait_ms=3000" > /etc/modprobe.d/wireless.conf -- 19:40, 23 September 2014‎ NickNill

Moved to talk as it doesn't explain what this does, nor how it fits in the article. Possibly belongs in Wireless_network_configuration#Random_disconnections -- Alad (talk) 17:55, 23 September 2014 (UTC)


iwlist uses outdated interfaces, and iw works better with modern wireless drivers. Can we remove the wireless_tools options from Wireless_network_configuration#Manual_setup? Pid1 (talk) 15:11, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Many sections in Wireless_network_configuration#Troubleshooting still suggest only iwconfig commands. We need to find equivalent iw options first... -- Lahwaacz (talk) 15:21, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

"your key"

What is my key? Wireless_network_configuration#Association --Kete (talk) 00:38, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

I believe it is the security password configured on the router. Silverhammermba (talk) 12:47, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Setting regulatory domain

In the section Respecting the regulatory domain in my opinion the following information should be added:

Another reason for an unchanged regulatory domain after adjusting the settings can be the fact, that linux uses information about the regulatory domain provided by the access point. As far as I unterstand these information are only retrieved, if the PC is associated with the access point. For details see: [1] (subsection: Country IE processing)
