There is a tool called NetStumbler that can be used for tracking down rogue access points or routers - I don't think you can do anything with Windows group policies. Take a look at http://www.wi-fiplanet.com/tutorials/article.php/3590551/Track-Down-Rogue-Wireless-Access-Points.htm the section on detecting the rogue... It also has a link to NetStumbler

Good Luck

No, you are installing it on a laptop in order to find a rogue access point - for that purpose it is just listening.
