Get information on wireless LANs

Pre-Vista I used the excellent Netstumbler to discover wireless LANs around me and to make sure my router wasn’t set up with same channel as my neighbors. Unfortunately Netstumbler doesn’t work in Vista. Luckily this is default functionality through the netsh command:

netsh wlan show networks mode=bssid

Not as beautiful as Netstumbler, but it does the job!
