I'd suggest you start playing with "Network Stumbler", it's very and
quite usefull.

Then comes the problem, there are several Linux tools, you can find
some here
http://is-it-true.org/pt/ptips23.shtml
the problem is that it's not quite straight forward to use wirelss NIC
cards in linux due to the lack of some vendors/chipsets drivers, and
some of those tools are written specifically for certain drivers.

Unless you've got a "great" budget, I'd suggest you start researching
those tools. Find out the ones that would help you, and then see the
cards that can help you and go buy it/them.

some of those chipsets; Artheos, Prism, orinico, aironet, ...

Subject : Wireless Scanning

Everyone,

I'm currently looking for a tool (or compliment of tools) to perform
Wireless Scanning during a Pen test.  My plan is to Scan first for the
presence of 802.11(whatever), bluetooth, spycams, bugs, etc. Once
these are
detected, then each of the items found can have their security
tested.  My
goal of being able to do this is to Take a good security audit
methodology
(such as the OSSTMM) and scale it down for small to medium business
effectively.

Can any one recommend tools that they have used to detect these items?
