Define "access points" and "vicinity". Are you looking for a port scanner? I
wrote a simple one recently.

access point = a hardware device that acts as a communication hub for
users of a wireless device to connect to a wired LAN.
vicinity = A nearby, surrounding, or adjoining region (in my case the
range of a single wireless device, no multihops)

no it's not a port scanner that i'm looking for. it's more like a
roaming tool that i need, something to find out what possible access
points are available.

thanks anyway
