*Sigh* netstumbler does NOT connect to a network in ANY way. That is the nic's clients job. Netstumbler only identifies wireless ap's that does not mean you can connect to them. That is illegal if you do not have the consent of the owner of said ap. And most airports or coffee house will advertise the fact that they offer wifi so that pretty much makes netstumbler redundant.

Just ask the owner of the network.
