The rpm from here for CentOS 6.5 satisfies the dependency: http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=wireless-tools

Comment 1 Jeremy Newton 2014-07-11 23:20:48 UTC
This is not a bug with TLP per say... The package seems to be missing from CentOS 7, which is not the responsibility of the EPEL team.

Please report this as a bug to CentOS, as wireless-tools is required for this package to function.

If this cannot be resolved by the CentOS team and is in fact an issue with RHEL 7 , which is the code base for CentOS, then please file a bug against RHEL 7, which can be done at the following link:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Red%20Hat%20Enterprise%20Linux%207

If this is truly the case, please CC me on the bug or forward it to me, so I can help get this resolved as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, because this is not a bug with TLP, I will be closing this issue, sorry. Feel free to keep in touch if you need help.
