KiFi is a wireless networking manager for the K Desktop Environment. It allows you to view the status of all wireless cards installed on your system that implement the Linux Wireless Extensions interface (most cards today), including currently associated SSID and signal strength.
You can also put a card into "scanning" mode, which will scan for available networks. You can then use KiFi to associate with a discovered network.

Oct 15, 2004: iwlib from the wireless_tools package has now been imported into the source tree. This should fix the number one issue that has come up of users not having the correct version installed.
Oct 9, 2004 : Small update: the known networks view now is kept up-to-date with scan results, ie. the signal strength for a scanned network is updated. Also, KiFi will minimally bring an interface up, if it's not already up, if you want to start scanning (as scanning requires the interface to be up).
Oct 7, 2004 : The version in CVS right now allows you to switch between networks somewhat, so I'm releasing again. This is mostly to get feedback, and because I'm not sure if this version has been released.
Initial public release. Contains support for reporting signal strength and associated SSID for multiple wireless cards. Also provides initial support for scanning for available networks.
