    Hi all, anyone know where I can see who's connected to my wireless? I'm using a baudtec router but can't seem to find it in the config pages for the router :/

    Start > Run > type "cmd" and hit enter.

    In the Command prompt type "ipconfig" with no quotes

    Your "Default Gateway" IP is the address you will need to enter into the browser to access the router config pages..

    Usually!

    Either a page built in to the router web config or run a network scan.

    nmap -sP 192.168.0.1/24

    nmap is the program, -sP is a ping scan, 192.168.0.1 is your network and /24 is the CIDR (Everything in the network).

    I don't have a network, I use the router purely to connect to the internet. I can access the routers config page, but can't see where I'd see the info I'm looking for on said config page.

    If you have a computer and a router you have a network.

    If there is a wireless config page then it should list the mac addresses currently using your wireless.

    If you're having issues with people leeching your wireless then lock your wireless to the MAC addresses of the machines you use.

    Alternatively you could run a piece of software such as Advanced IP Scanner from radmin.com which will give you the IP and mac of every connected machine in your IPrange/subnet - from there you should be able to identify clients.

    look under dns leases in the routers gui.. not sure what kind of router you have- anyway the leases will show who logged in and was assigned an ip.. they usually expire within a day

    I'm assuming windows, so.. I'll leave the linux mumbo jumbo
