Kismet/mac? It can find points that aren't broadcasting SSID (assuming that
someone is using them).
Do a wired TCP scan for devices with port 80 open? Most access points have a
built-in webserver. This is going to find printers and other devices too.
Maybe even the coffeepot...
Be it thy course to busy giddy minds
With foreign quarrels; that action, hence borne out,
May waste the memory of the former days.
