Answer
WiNG 5 Rouge AP detection is limit to SOHO grade Access Points. This is due to most enterprise 802.11 Access Points do not have the same Ethernet Base MAC address (OUI) as the radio BSS.  It will not be able to detect a enterprise grade rouge Access Points. 

If full time scanning and termination of rogue enterprise grade access points is a requirement, ADSP (AirDefense) will be required.
