The iStumbler Spectrum Widget displays a virtual spectrum analyzer on your Dashboard , allowing you to visually detect network radio frequency overlap. Spectrum gets it's information directly from iStumbler to provide you with the most accurate signal information available.

iStumbler + Spectrum Release 95 and later are available as a a Universal Binary for use on both Power PC and Intel based Macs. Only cursory testing has been performed on a pre-release MacBook Pro but indications are that iStumbler works as well on Intel as it does on a Power PC Processor.
