Not a kismet replacement...
If you're like some individuals who rely on ndiswrapper and cannot use kismet, this command may be of service. watch -n .5 "iwlist wlan0 scan | egrep 'ESSID|Encryption'" Or... watch -n .5 "iwlist wlan0 scan | egrep 'ESSID|Encryption' | egrep 'linksys'" :-) Hopefully you'll find some dd-wrt compatible routers.

find geographical location of an ip address
I save this to bin/iptrace and run "iptrace ipaddress" to get the Country, City and State of an ip address using the http://ipadress.com service. I add the following to my script to get a tinyurl of the map as well: URL=`lynx -dump http://www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/?QRY=$1|grep details|awk '{print $2}'` lynx -dump http://tinyurl.com/create.php?url=$URL|grep tinyurl|grep "19. http"|awk '{print $2}'
