In order to assist assessing the range/quality of a node, being able to scan for regular 802.11b/g networks in range would be very beneficial.

Hey, thanks urlgrey! Would love to have you drop by #hsmm-mesh on Freenode IRC some time, I was actually working on this a bit last night and was planning to do a pull request tomorrow. Looks like you beat me to it!

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for creating this issue, it's a great feature to have and wasn't very difficult to add. I'll drop by the IRC channel in a bit! Here's a screenshot of the WiFi scan output:

@urlgrey fixes #8. Had to modify the sudoers file via the script to…
… allow the www-data user to run iwlist to list the wireless networks.
