    I've read that it's possible to load Kismet on a WRT54G, but it seems you also need to have Linux installed on your computer to act as a drone.

    Is there any software that I can load onto the router that will give me a list of available networks and their signal strength? Even a simple one that I could just telnet into, run once, and have it give me a report of what it found would be cool. Basically I'm looking for a simple version of NetStumbler that runs on the router.

    Any such software available?

    Telnet/SSH to CLI, then type:

    wl scan
    wl scanresults

    Any idea why this happens:

    (none):[~]# wl scan
    eth1: Invalid argument
    scan Initiate an active scan across all channels.
    Optional SSID argument specifies a particular SSID to scan.
    With no SSID argument, a broadcast SSID scan is performed.

    (none):[~]# wl scanresults

    I have seen this before. What version of router do you have? (the v1.0 uses eth2 and v1.1 and higher uses eth1 as the interface)

    Try this:

    wl ap 0
    wl scan
    wl scanresults
