Vista utility to monitor wifi signal?

I'm looking for a utility that runs on Vista to monitor the different wifi access-points in the neighborhood.

WirelessMon will do this, but why do you want to connect to other AP's? Connecting to an AP that is not yours is illegal.

"Recommended by Gizmo's freeware:

NetStumbler is a free packet sniffer
utility used to locate Wi-Fi networks.
It's one of the first tools of its
kind and arguably still the best. So
much so that it is the standard
product used by war-drivers in their
perpetual search for free bandwidth
via unsecured Wi-Fi networks as well
as road-warriors looking to connect
their laptops back to the office."
