I can see four or five, depending on time of day etc, with the Atheros-based
Airport card built into the Intel Mac and the Macbook.
I found the data file from the last time I went wardriving around the
neighborhood (July '05). Unfortunately the GPS was giving funky data,
and the coordinates are about 33 miles offset from where I actually was..
Some interesting entries that I wouldn't expect to have WiFi:
N -95.33007812 W 29.44231445 WGPuckExpress 00:0d:3a:28:d4:79
N -95.28596680 W 29.44227295 GOODYEAR-GEMINI 00:04:e2:bc:73:06
N -95.30808594 W 29.44241943 cicispos 00:12:17:b5:73:9a
All of the "2WIRE" entries are apparently the Time Warner-provided
Will be interesting to do it again once I get a vehicle (the Kia's dead,
so I'm driving Amy's car and she doesn't want me all geeking it up) to
drive around in..
