Assessment tools for a wireless network

What assessment tools can be used with a wireless network?
I assume you are looking for tools to assess the vulnerabilty of access points in your wireless network. The only such tool that I am aware of is IBM's Wireless Security Auditor.

Unfortunately, it is only a research prototype at this time, and IBM has not yet decided whether to market this as a product or release it as open source.

Some security consultants offer wireless assessments. Among them are Guardant and Foundstone.
