Shields Up?
Would documenting the process to have users perform a reverse port scan using a site such as Gibson Research Corporation's Shields Up work?  At least we would know if they had any open ports that could be targeted.

Automation
While the advice in this article isn't wrong, I think it's quite hard to do this well without some kind of automation to detect the router/gateway and provide tailored instructions to the end-user for their specific model. Endpoint vendors could do a lot (since they are operating within the network) to help deliver information about the security of the router or AP to the security (with the end-user's consent)

Securing routers
I would say provide them with configuration files that locks down the routers, especially if they are using a certain kind from a vendor. 

Also, talk with the vendor to see if they would be willing to work together to develop a secured process for their employees.
