    Ok, I stand corrected.
    The wap-nmap readme file states: 
    Okay basically wap-nmap is nothing more than a script that performs an
    nmap scan of a user input IP address or hostname and pumps the results
    back out to a wap enabled device... most often than not this happens to be"
    So I guess this scan can be from a mobile or a wired network device.
    It still doesn't differentiate what is a wireless IP address from a wired
    one, which was my query.
    Thanks Jeremy.

    It doesn't scan from the wireless side. It scans from where ever the web
    server it is sitting on is located. All wap-nmap is is a set of wml and php
    files that redirect your input to a command line and feed the output back to
    the wap device. Which btw is completely different from 802.11b.
