    i have only used it once, and the only function that i think it has, is to display nearby networks, strength, and if its protected

    After 2 seconds of googling (heard of it?):

    "Stumbler lets you view the wireless networks in your area. While right now Stumbler only handles 802.11 networks, soon you should see Bluetooth and GSM capabilities as well.

    Stumbler is still in a early Alpha stage, but it is fully functional, and pretty stable.

    Planned Features:

    Auto Scanning
    Manufacturer detection
    Logging
    A-GPS
    Raw 802.11 packet capture (monitor mode)"

    its a wi-fi sniffer, basically to find wi-fi's in the area, of course ur settings already do this, but this program will allow u to see the strength of the available wi-fi's
