Does anyone know how to talk to a wireless router using SNMP?

If you're just trying to extract configuration bits, check out snmpwalk. You'll need to know (at the very least) the read community name for the device.

Incidentally, enabling snmp on a Linux box and then using snmpwalk and paging through the results can be a really enlightening experience. Most of my experience is with Red Hat. snmpwalk will actually tell you all the RPM's installed on a box (among many MANY other things).

If you want to get fancy along the lines of monitoring, check out mrtg. To get REALLY fancy check out OpenNMS.
