Best free wireless tools besides Network Stubler?

It used to be you could get a free version of Wild Packets' Airopeek.  But looks like you can only get a demo now or purchase their $1000 software.  Anyone know of any other good wireless tools that are freely available?

Seriously, there are tons of free wireless sniffers/crackers etc etc available for linux.
The only catch is that you need to be very confortable with linux and compiling your own code etc.  Some of these open source tools have windows ports which may or not work (this all depends on what wireless (chipset) cards you use).

Hope this helps.
