None really. They mostly do a port scan on the public ip address, which will be your router. I assume you want a full security check and also for someone/thing to pen test your wireless network...right?

Look for Shields Up!

That does only scan the public port as Ceyko said but its a good one...

Recommend all data be backed up prior to posting. Rumor is Stang2be can get carried away on his vulnerability testing.
