10.3: Display Specific System Profiler information
Authored by: babbage on Oct 27, '03 06:40:04PM

If you're looking for info on command line access to your Airport card, there was a package available at http://homepage.mac.com/macstumbler/ that let you play around with Airport from the command line. That site is no longer online, but the file provided has been mirrored all over, for example at http://distfiles.master.finkmirrors.net/airport.tar.gz.

I haven't had a chance to run it on a machine with an airport card yet, so I'm not sure what it can do, but you get full source code (in fact, you have to compile it yourself) so it may be possible to get it to sniff the SSID info.

Alternatively, searching Google for things like "airport wireless command line" etc brings up lots and lots of hits.
