I’m a big fan of NetStumbler WiFi discovery tool, but I’m sadly disappointed that it’s not supported under Microsoft Vista. However, we can use a Vista network command prompt to find more technical details for the wireless networks around.


Open a cmd command prompt from the Start button

Type netsh

Type wlan show networks mode=bssid

Here’s the information I see right now:

netsh command screen
