Wi-Fi scanner software for mac needed

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
Hi All,

Does anybody knows of a good Wi-Fi scanner that i can use on my MacBook to identify:

- nearby wireless networks
- their channels
- ssid's
- signal strengths

Basically, i'm looking for a software that will help me with troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks. Either free one or paid one is fine, just need to be worthy and compatible with mac. If it will have any other capabilities or features - it's more than welcome.

Please recommend. Thanks in advance!
