Hardware to monitor WiFi availability?



Our site has WiFi provided by a 3rd party and we don't have access to the management interface, but would like to be able to use our extensive PRTG instance to monitor the availability of the SSIDs (i.e. answer the question "Has the wifi gone down?"). Not having management access I was thinking of devices spread throughout the site that connect to the WiFi network and report their status back to PRTG, probably over Ethernet. I'm sure this could probably be done with a Raspberry Pi or similar, but does anyone know of off-the-shelve devices specifically designed to do this?
