some further info, here is the output of iwconfig:

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wlan0     RTxx70 Wireless  ESSID:""  Nickname:"RT3070STA"
          Mode:Auto  Frequency=2.412 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated   
          Bit Rate:1 Mb/s   
          RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Link Quality=100/100  Signal level:-55 dBm  Noise level:-97 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

I had to cut and paste that from the shell to gedit,

because if I did

iwconfig >> somefile

the lo and eth0 info went to the shell.

is there a shell trick to capture all the shell output to a file?
