I don't know if you've seen or heard of this yet, but Wi-Fi innovator Meraki has released a free Wi-Fi discovery tool, often called a stumbler, that runs in a browser Window. I've been using this on a Mac Mini with a .11n radio, via the still-buggy Firefox, and it works fine, although I may have discovered a minor Java-related problem that seems to disable selecting text - it's a beta, after all, or this might be a Firefox issue. OK, it's not the most robust discovery tool out there, but its browser-based nature and the reasonable amount of info presented make it worthy of your attention. You can suggest features and enhancements, and I'm sure the production release will be valuable.

Here's hoping we see a lot more browser-based tools in the future. You can't beat the convenience.
