WiFi Channel Scanner is a small and free utility which can scan your area for local wireless networks. Unlike built-in tools for Windows, WiFi Channel Scanner provides you with several extra details which otherwise lack.
With this application, you are given a list of local networks. The details included are the SSID (Network Name), the channel which the network is operating, the signal quality from your current location and more.
This scanner will also include information about the algorithm used for authentication, the cipher and even the device MAC address.
Very simple and useful overall.
