Rogue access points

What's the easiest way to determine if I have rogue access points that employees may have installed on my wireless network?
A low-budget, yet effective, way to check for wild access points is to simply take a laptop computer with a wireless NIC around your facility and see if it can connect to any APs. Your wireless NIC may even have client software that will scan for wireless networks to attach to automatically. Also, to make this process a little easier, check out Network Stumbler and Mini Stumbler (for PDAs) at www.netstumbler.com. These programs are free and add more functionality that can help you in this process.
