Find the Right Channel for Your Wireless AP

If you're setting up a new wireless router (or just curious about the wireless networks in the area) check out inSSIDer. InSSIDer makes it easy to see what channels the other access points use, as well as what encryption is in use (if any), and the brand of the AP. This is very helpful for choosing a less used channel for your router, and if you're a tech it can help with enumerating a client's setup.

InSSIDer is available for Linux and Windows. It has deb and rpm packages making the Linux install easy.
