Think outside the box. ;)
Most of the areas I can think of that are "no wireless allowed" are either
areas with a goverment security rating (in which case the friendly Marine will
make *sure* you aren't carrying a cell phone ;) or testing facilities where
you don't want unaccounted-for radiation. In the latter case, you also
need to worry about standoff distance (what about a guy using a cell phone
just OUTSIDE the building)?
If you could explain in more detail *why* "no wireless allowed", we might
be able to point you in a better direction.
Remember in your threat analysis to consider the fact that the person can
always make a cell phone call right after he/she leaves your facility...
