    I like the idea but there’s no way I’m shelling out $8 for something that should be free and included from Apple anyway

    It’s sad to say but Windows has a better system of discovering and displaying wireless networks

    I kind of agree with Thumper. Though it’s not quite as convenient, iStumbler serves this same purpose and a whole lot more. It’s free too. http://www.istumbler.net/

    Apple does include something free — the airport utility (in Panther, at least):

    # cd /usr/local/bin
    # ln -s /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport

    It should auto-update. That would be really cool.
