Kismet

If you run Linux then Kismet is an excellent tool for WarDriving or site surveys. (The BSD's, MacOSX and Win32 (Cygwin) are also mentioned, but with varying degrees of support.)

From the External linkKismet home page:
Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with any wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g traffic.

Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic.

Common applications Kismet is useful for (as extracted from the External linkdocumentation)...
