Hey there,

Sorry to be so slow to reply; you've probably found the answer
already. But just in case, the command you're looking for is "iwlist
eth0 scan" (substitute your interface for eth0, obviously).

If you don't have anything called "iwlist" on your system, the package
you need is the Wireless Tools. ("wireless-tools" in debian, can't
remember the name in slack - SWARET or similar should help you out
