    Im using kismac and it works great, and im finding a lot of networks. My question is, is there any way to know where these networks are? Like network1 is 40ft northeast or something.. ?

    yeah...it's a no. You can hook up a gps to kismac and use it to map out all the places you got signals, but there's no way to triangulate a specific WAP. Sorry.

    if you happened to have a notebook that you can use PCMCIA cards and use an external wifi card particularlly the orinoco gold which lets you attach a pigtail to an external antenna you can generalize the region where the signal is coming from. with an external directional antenna you can scan the area and find where the signal is the strongest. mapping and signal strengths will you to determine the extact location.
