Like the program  "insider" that shows me the WIFI routers near me, I'm looking for one that shows me WIFI devices connected to those WIFI routers.  I'm looking for a simple way to diagnose remote camera and other devices for proper operation and connectivity to its router or collector of input streams.

Those devices don't broadcast a SSID and as such I don't believe there is any scanning software that can detect them.

The best you could do would be to connect to the wireless network and see what devices are connected to it. Here's a How To Geek page on it.
