Just brought home a new 15-inch MacBook Pro and have not heard a lot yet about any problems with either of these two programs so thought I would ask here before I start doing all of the installations.

This is the mailing list for Kismac. They'd be the first people I'd ask.

Maybe I'll give the DWL-G122 a whirl, but its RF sucks big time.
Edit - BTW Netstumbler runs just fine under Bootcamp/XP with the Airport.

I came close to waiting for the new chipset but just could not resist any longer.
It looks like you may need to download drivers for the G devices. I plugged my DWL-G122 in an the link lite did not even come on.
I also have a MA111 and a WG111v2 that are in my bag at work that I need to bring home and test as well.
I did not compile the binaries. I used the same .dmg that I used on the PB G4.

I am not sure what is going to happen next month. I have been reading the zines about the new Intel chips for both desktop and laptop that Apple seems to be pressuring Intel to bring to market.
Given that and until more people move to the MBP it might be a wise decision to wait it out. As for me, going on-line shopping for a 2nd 1GB RAM module for mine tonight!
