NetStumbler runs on Windows 2000 and W9x, and requires a Hermes-based chipset for the wireless network card, although it may work with others. When a wireless network is located, you'll find that it has discovered all sorts of information about that network. Some of the information includes, whether WEP encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is turned on or off, the MAC address of the access point, and who its manufacturer is. Also displayed is the SSID (Service Set Identifier) or network name, the channel the AP is using, and if you have a GPSR (Global Positioning System Receiver) attached, it will log your latitude and longitude, making it easier to determine the location of the access point.
