Well, you could make a copy of the arp tables for each network, and then
look for the installation of new somethings with new MAC addresses. When
those new mac addresses show up, you could query what they are, or probe
them (eg try to connect to the standard http router entry points.)
Or look for NATing (using very high number ports coming from one system.)

Send out pre-configured cheap laptops (use ones work fine) with Wireless
cards installed, wired NICs, and PC Anywhere or Carbon Copy, or any remote
control product on it.  Have someone at the site simply plug in the network
card and boot the machines.  Let them sit there.  Visit them periodically
with remote control, and open the Wireless connect application.  Scan for
wireless access points.  Nothing complex, nor expensive.
