Any option for Windows?

Does anyone know of a similar one for Windows? I know this is a Mac app, but not all of us are lucky enough to have a Mac yet :)

Here is a similar product for Windows: http://www.passmark.com/products/wirelessmonitor.htm

It does a lot of cool stuff. I like NetSpot's maps better, but this has a lot of useful features. It has a free 30-day trial, so you can try it out (I actually haven't).

Nice App!!!

Looks like a promising app, waiting for updates

Yes completely agree. There's simply nothing out there for OS X that can come close to doing all that Netspot can accomplish for free
