This is a question about NetStumbler and effective logging.

Basically I have a warehouse which I believe is in an EMI noisey environement, but I need to prove this somehow. I was thinking of setting up 5 laptops with Windows 2000, each running NetStumbler. I need to log the signal strength and the noise ie. the red and green graphing should work.

I know that I need a specific type of card to do this but finding one seems an almost impossible task.

Each type of card I look at has either been updated recently and wont work, or the UK version is different to the US version which does work.

Please could somebody recommend a card to do this task. It has to be available now and in the UK.

any card with an intersil prism chipset 2.5 or newer will work. It just has to be built for UK standard, but that doesn't have to do with the chip .... only the software differs and sometimes the final transistor as FCC regulations allow 200mW out power while CE is only 100mW.
