    I don't understand what it does that my normal wireless utility won't do.

    I see it on a lot of guys must have apps list, that's why I ask.

    KisMac just gives you more info about the access points it finds and allows you do more things, good and shadey, that the OS utility won't and isn't designed to do.

    With Kissmac you can crack WEP security by packet overloading it. Works pretty well too, at least with a USB wireless adapter.
