Testing wireless access point w/o notebook...?

RoninV
We just added a few WAP (Linksys) to our network (W2k server), and they all 'ping' fine. Is there a way to test them without 'accessing' them from the outside? Basically, can they be tested without using a wireless notebook?

    But these have limited use and can show a WiFi Access Point not Active or present depending on the Security implemented.

    But you really should use a WiFi enabled computer to check your security. Even if you just plug in a WiFi Card to a Desk Top Computer and access the WiFi through that.
