Re: figuring out all wireless connections on fedora 6/7

Dear list,

How does one figure out all the wireless connections available at a given time?
I am told that in ubuntu, I can go to the menu:

   System -> Administration -> Networking

which gives a list of possible connections.  Then do what comes naturally to
change the connection.  Within the same dialog tool there is a place where one
can name the current network configuration, e.g., "home wireless" or "home
cable" or "work wireless".  Then changing the network is a matter of clicking
one of the named items.

I am trying to find out whether there is a similar setup available for fedora
which  would list all the available wireless connections. What is the command?
system-config-network does not seem to be providing available wireless or an
easy way to connect once identified.......

You are looking for Network Manager (developed within Fedora, no less). It is enabled by default for the live images but not the regular spin.

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/NetworkManager
