WiFi Explorer is a Mac utility that allows you to scan, monitor, and troubleshoot wireless networks. It gathers configuration and capability information about all the networks it discovers and presents it on an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface.
Information includes network name (SSID), BSSID, vendor, channel, band, security configuration, supported data rates, and much more. It supports 802.11b/g/n networks in the 2.4 GHz frequency band, as well as 802.11a/n/ac in the 5 GHz frequency band.

Fixes bug that was causing the app to filter out networks with an RSSI of -85 dBm or lower.
New app icon (Thanks to Steven K.)
New in version 2.0:
Fixes incorrect max. data rates under certain circumstances.
Fixes incorrect state of Stop button when not scanning.
Addresses issue caused by certain access points that advertise a secondary channel even though they are set to operate at 20 MHz channel width only.
Addresses an issue where intermittent 0 dBm RSSI values might be reported by OS X for certain networks.
Better looks in OS X Yosemite.
Networks can be quickly filtered by ESSID, PHY mode, radio, vendor or signal strength levels.
Networks can be grouped by physical radio in Signal Strength and Channels graph.
Beacon interval and basic rates can now be added as columns.
DFS channels can be hidden in Channels graph if not being used by any networks.
Made sure CSV file generated from export option includes all fields.
Vendors database can now be updated from within the app.
Other minor bug fixes plus stability and performance improvements.
Compatibility: OS X 10.7 or later, 64-bit processor
