I'm not sure I understand.  For example:

root at netbox:~# iwspy wlan0
Warning : Device wlan0 has been compiled with version 13
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 12.
Some things may be broken...

wlan0     Statistics collected:
     00:90:4B:D0:CF:AD : Quality:88/92  Signal level:-22 dBm  Noise 
level:-39 dBm (updated)
     typical/average   : Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0

This is on a Debian woody system with 2.4.19, and hostap around the 
0.1.1 mark from CVS, acting in Master mode.  It'll show me all clients 
connected, which is very handy for testing.

The iwspy manpage just tells me to use it the way I am, and I can't see 
anything relevant in the iwlist manpage.
