    I found this http://www.istumbler.net/

    It's not bad but I'm looking for something integrated directly into the Airport interface.

    Hi TEX

    Seeing as you seem to be posting allot of questions as you are new to OS X and Macs in general ( not a bad thing )i thought id take the liberty & recommend a book its called "leopard the missing by david pogue" its a highly recommended book and will help you out no end in your quest to learn more about OS X

    Thanks for the link, Tex-Twil.

    When I open Airport from the menu bar while holding down the option key and move the curser over my network, it shows RSSI: null and Security: null.

    Yet, when I check under Network WPA@ Personal security is shown.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Bill
