It would help if you could explain what you are trying to do. However if you want to find from which house/apartment/block the signal itself originates you could try use the signal strength to determine your distance from the source, possibly assisted by a gps device to get more exact data. An application like Kismet "Wireless mapping with Kismet"may help you with logging and mapping the data. Other than that, there are several web pages that keep lists of local hotspots. Use google to find those.
