[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Scanning WLAN problem

Hi all,

I'm developing an application to Nokia 770 which scans available network
infomation and then sends collected infomation to server.

I'm using modifed wireless tools (
http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Tools.html) wlist
source which works fine and
I can get all WLAN netwok information I need, but I can't send them to
server because in order to get the scanning to work the current
working network connection must be disconnected.

If I use script to connect to network automatically the problem still

source /usr/bin/connectivity_preload

If I have network setup I cant perform scanning iwlist prints'Interface
doesn't support scanning'. This is because function iw_get_range_info in
returns !=1.

My questions are:
1. Is there a way to get scanning to work while the network connection is
2. If not what is the best solution to implement requested functionality
(scan network -> send information to server)?
3. How does N800 work in this scenario?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
