    For network info type: ifconfig and will see device name like wlan1 and other info.
    For more wifi info type: iwconfig wlan1 (or whatever name your device had above)
    To search for access points iwlist wlan1 scanning

    If you type man command-name you can get the usage info and options for these commands.
