I know in Ubuntu we have nmcli dev wifi to see a list of near SSIDs. But this command seems not exist in raspbian. Is there an alternative way?


Googling "linux find nearby ssid" suggests

sudo iwlist wlan0 scan|grep SSID

  • Any idea why sudo iwlist wlan0 scan gets a full list of neighboring SSIDs, but iwlist wlan0 scan gets only one? – Seamus Jul 7 '18 at 22:11
