The Wlan Scanning module, aka "wlantools," is a module for S60 Python.

Here's what it returns when I run it in my office:

Python 2.2.2 (#0, Oct 11 2007, 20:32:16) [C] on symbian_s60
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
Type "commands" to see the commands available in this simple line editor.
>>> import wlantools
>>> wlantools.scan()

Using the documentation to parse this apart, I find three wifi access points in range:

SSID BSSID Channel Security Mode
wificharlottetown.org 00:06:25:A2:D4:06 1 Open
groveair-g 00:12:17:9E:C8:2C 4 WEP
