Nessus is the best vulnerability scanner I know of.

For port scanning, NMAP is a great choice:

Commented:
As far as I know, there aren't any vulnerability scanners specifically for microtek and cisco routers.

As Sig. Corleone mentioned, nessus (or openvas if you prefer open source) may well have vulnerability tests for these routers so that's worth a shot.

Nmap can very likely detect hosts that are these routers, but it doesn't have any tests for vulnerabilities in them (you could write NSE scripts to test for specific vulns though).

So in order to help, it would be good if you could say exactly what you're trying to achieve.
