If you don't require a fancy GUI, kismet will give you all the software tools of the fanciest (i.e. most expensive) consultants. If you need a fancy GUI, I don't know what to use. I'm prepared to bet stuff like the one you linked is probably just a GUI wrapper around something like kismet anyway :-) –  gecko Jan 8 '13 at 18:00

There is one more tool In Ubuntu software Centre named as Kismet.

Kismet is a 802.11b wireless network sniffer. It is capable of sniffing using almost any supported wireless card using the Airo, HostAP, Wlan-NG, and Orinoco (with a kernel patch) drivers.

Can make use of sox and festival to play audio alarms for network events and speak out network summary on discovery. Optionally works with gpsd to map scanning.

you can install it from terminal( CTRL+ALT+T) also with

sudo apt-get install kismet
