If you don't use IPv6 and still have a working network connection, this shouldn't matter.

As for sit0 not having wireless extensions, this is either because it doesn't have a wireless chip in the interface or you do not have the proper kernel modules in the kernel/they are not modprobed.

padoor,

sit0 is not a wireless interface. Its an IPv6 tunnel end point.

There are no wireless interfaces listed in your post.
