Default Netstumbler + Sony Vaio (Intel 4965agn WiFi)

I am using a Sony Vaio for a few days - running Windows Vista -
the real small SZ version that weighs 3.9lbs and has everything.

Anyway - it comes with the Intel 4965AGN WiFi card that supports A/G/N
but it doesn't seem to play with Netstumbler.

It could be a "permissions" thing.... under Vista.
I start up NetStumbler, and at the bottom of NS,
where the AP Points Found text is usually displayed,
I get a small flashing yellow triangle, with "Access is denied".
The WiFi card is selected/checkmarked in the Netstumber device menu.

I think I would get this error on XP when I was logged in as a "user" vs "admin"
but here on Windows Vista, I am logged in as an "admin" type account -

SO - ideas ?

Currently NetStumbler does not work on Vista .
You can download a tool that can do the job called Vistumbler .

Netstumbler doesn't work on Vista.

You might want to try the expanded "netsh" command in Vista:
Start -> run -> cmd <enter>
netsh wlan show networks
netsh wlan show networks mode=bssid
netsh wlan show networks interface="Your Wireless Device Here"
