Any programs to show wifi signals and strength(quicker than windows)?

Is there a program that will show real time wifi signals and signal strength? The windows wireless connection finder is way too slow.

Are you talking about widget type programs? If on Vista, there are a bunch..

Stephen you need to mention what your OS is? Network Stumbler is a damn good program for wifi searching but it WILL NOT WORK with Vista. There are several copycat programs that are similar that will work with it. If you are using XP or 2000 Network Stumbler is probably the best one out there. Just so you know...it will only pick up the signal and give you information about it...the program will NOT connect you to the network.

I use XIRRUS WiFi Monitor, which is a free Windows Vista gadget for the sidebar. You can set it up to show your signal strength in percent or dBm. It will also show your neighbors SSIDs.
