    iwconfig problems


    I installed Wireless tools but when I type in:
    [root@manor Proj]# iwconfig
    bash: iwconfig: command not found
    I receive a bash error.
    Does anyone have any suggestions? Please be as detailed as possible because I am extremely new to Linux.
    Thanks

    2 things first what distro are you on and were you root when you typed in the command. if not you have to type /sbin/iwconfig because the path is obscured if not root.

    Please also post method of installation of wireless tools. Was it a tarball, rpm? Might have not installed correctly. Give steps.
