Find AP Mac address from my connected XP, or Win7 box

Last Modified: 2014-01-17
Is it possible to find out the mac address of the access point that my XP, or Win7 box is connected to from the wifi connected XP, or wifi connected Win7 box?  I've tried ipconfig/all - no joy there, I thought maybe there is another way, command line syntax, or small 3rd party software.

Simple - I have several access points in my 50 acre lot.  I can find the MAC address from my barcode scanner thru the Summit Client Utility - cool.  

My Mac does this thru, "About This Mac", "More Info...", "AirPort" will tell me the mac address of the AP my mac is logged onto (yeah for mac).
