Thats a good read, another good wireless story is

Here's an excerpt from it

Sometimes the the growing sophistication of your own employees creates the problem, according to Jay Chaudhry, CEO of AirDefense. Chaudhry recently met with a large systems integrator where network executives, concerned about wireless security, had banned wireless LANs. To enforce the ban, IT staff routinely made the rounds of the site with NetStumbler loaded on wireless laptops, searching for any "rogue" access points. They didn't find any.

Chaudhry found out why. "Whenever the 'IP police' go around with NetStumbler, the users simply unplug their access points, hide them in a drawer or cupboard, and set them up again after the sweep is over," he says.
