Python WiFi has a new home at [WWW] The documentation in this wiki has been copied over.


A new api is being organized for Python WiFi beyond v0.5.0. Your feedback will make Python WiFi better, so please participate.

Python WiFi is intended for developers that wish to use their WiFi card from within a Python program. If you are looking for a GNU/Linux program to scan for, and connect with, WiFi networks, you may want to try [WWW]WiFi Radar, [WWW]Wicd, or [WWW]NetworkManager.

Python WiFi is a Python module that provides read and write access to a wireless network card's capabilities using the Linux Wireless Extensions. This module was initially created by RĂ³man Joost and is currently maintained by Sean Robinson <robinson AT tuxfamily DOT org>. The latest version is 0.5.0.

This is the official location of documentation and support for Python WiFi (a.k.a. pythonwifi). Feel free to add content you think will be helpful to other developer-users. To watch for changes to this wiki, visit Recent Changes and subscribe to the RSS feed there.


To help others understand where I see Python WiFi going in the next year or so, there is a ROADMAP describing the current timeline.

Recently added are matrices of features to try to match: Feature Matrix/Wireless Extensions, Feature Matrix/, and Feature Matrix/
