as Bob suggested, please make sure that you are in a root shell while using 
the 'iwconfig' command. If you 'path' is not correctly set, it is possible 
that you will have to use the '/sbin/iwconfig' command instead.

The 'wireless-tools' package is not documented in the installation 
instructions because if you try to install the RPM without the 
'wireless-tools' package, you will obtain an 'unresolved dependency' error 
for the 'wireless-tools' package. The 'wireless-tools' package contains the 
'iwconfig' program.

Since the real cause of the problem can't be determined without more 
information, please send at support at linuxant.com a 'dumpdiag'. While the 
DriverLoader package is installed and your wireless adapter is attached to 
your computer, enter the following command in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('driverloaderdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
