    I'm not sure if this is the forum for it but here goes. I am still pretty dense with networking and only know enough to make things work for the moment but I am learning.

    My question is, when i set up a wireless router network and you can take any old laptop with wireless builtin and find the network and logon, (before having the proper security measures enabled) how can I - from the main PC - tell who is connected via wireless to my network?

    I have been in the process of setting up security measures and for jollys wanted to see if I could see my test laptop when it was connected and couldn't see it. I can see the hardwired PCs but they are already part of the established work group. I was trying to simulate seeing an outside PC that gained wireless access to the network.

    I am cornfused !:rolleyes: but then.... I am much of the time...

    I have a menu in my router called 'Attacjed devices'. What router do you have?

    "Airsnare" will show devices attached to your network. You can tag your own devices as friendly, and have it alert you if any others are connected.
