AirPort Radar Dashboard Widget
AirPort Radar is a free and convenient tool for quickly scanning the area
for AirPort and other wireless networks. It will work with AirPort cards,
MacWireless 11g PC Cards, and 11g PCI cards. Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger is required.

that category. Click on the radio waves symbol to sort by signal strength.
Connect to Open Networks – By simply clicking on the name you can connect
to any network that is not password protected.

too weak to connect to.
You can choose how many scans a lost network stays on-screen with the “Scan
