Hello!

http://www.500images.com/uploads/2007928279foto.gif

Is it normal that I see 5 wifi nets but only the net
named "dlink wireless" has a green circle?

Why the other nats have what seems a connection of 3
tubes/cable?
Why I can see the quality graphic of the signal only for
the net with green circle?
Why I can't see ssid name and channel of the nets (one
of the net is my wifi net and I'm sure it broadcasts
ssid name)?

Zero configuration sees all the 5 nets and show proper
ssid name.

Is it a Netstumbler bug?
Is it a Netstumbler problem to use the driver of my
belkin usb dongle?

Thank you for your answers.

Netstumbler 0.4.0 is a few year old now and has limited support for newer
Wireless Adapters, so in those cases Netstumbler might peform "Better"
if you select the NDIS 5.1 Device instead of the Native Device (that is
if you more than one "Suitable" Device under Netstumbler's Device Menu)???

Otherwise for the Vista Users there is an "Alternate" Vistumbler:
