Need a recommendation on what utilities are available for monitoring wireless strength.  Wll be running under XP.  Please recommend any that have more refined diagnostics than the weak 5 bar meter that XP provides.

Tried net stumbler, but it reads my access point as 54Mbps when its a DLink DI-624 running at 108Mbps.  The signal strength number reading is good for now, but wondering if there's something really good out there that worth spending some money on.
