    Rather than hunting down a program that displays the information (like Wifi Radar), just fire up terminal and input the following:

    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan | grep Frequency | uniq -c | sort -n

    You'll then get an output like this:

    Now you just need to log into your router and select a channel that's not in use or doesn't have as much traffic on it.

    So that's showing all of the WAPs in range? That's cool.
