Netstumbler was the WiFi sniffer of choice, but it didn't like Vista - who did :P - or 64 bit OS's
inSSIDer is the new ish kid on the block

I was looking into the Fluke Networks’ AirCheck handheld WiFi analyzer

when I came across this one, it isn't as flash, but is open source, which means free :)
