iwspy can be used to set a list of MAC addrs to listen for, and retrieve the values. I use it on my network with a Lucent card in ad-hoc mode to gather link statistics. Sometime tomorrow when my $%^@!#% DSL provider figures out that once again they cut me off for non-payment when they a) were supposed to autobill, and b) never said a *word* to me about it..... <breathe!> ..... my network stats will be available at for your browsing pleasure.
