For doing analysis of the RF/WiFi environment, the following tools are useful:

WiSpy - PC dongle to do 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrum capture.  Can show 802.11 and non-802.11 interference.

The power meter function is quite handy if you want to make duty cycle measurements or measure actual TX times.

Update on Wireshark:

The latest version of Wireshark (1.8.8 and later) now works out of the box when decoding packets with WPA/WPA2 security.
