How to Scan and display list of available wireless networks ?

LINSSID – linssid is a graphical wireless scanner, LinSSID displays locally receivable 802.11 wireless attach points and ad hoc networks. A table is displayed with various parameters such as MAC address, channel, and signal strength. Graphs are also displayed with signal strength by channel and signal strength over time.

LinSSID can be used to measure the local performance or to search for an interference free channel to be set in a wireless router (access point). The wireless established link won’t be affected by these operations because LinSSID needn’t set the monitor mode in network interface.
