Default Who is on my router.

Is there any way to find all the wireless devices connected to my router?

Well yeah. Access the router's admin pages and simply click on 'attached devices'.

Question Re: Who is on my router.

My list shows the named PCs as clients, but the other devices are listed as <unknown>. I assume they are my wife's and my cell phones and my printer, but it would be good to confirm this. I know I can match up MAC addresses, but is there any way to have attached devices that are not PCs show up with a name?

Match the MAC adddresses.

My "unknowns" have all been my iPads or iPhones that were sleeping and not fully connected, but the router knows they're there.

Did anyone ever solve the "No Attached Devices Showing" issue? - I've looked but can't find an answer - I show no devices either wired or wireless. BTW - WPA2 is cracked as easily as WEP was so that is a false sense of security. Best solution is to log the macs as suggested....

I have to reboot my router to get attached devices to show. That lasts for a while, but then have to reboot again. PITA.

WEP and WPA-TKIP are most hackable

WPA2-AES should be most safest. It takes longer duration to crack algorithm which most road warrior want deal with but anything is hackable unless you use WPA2/WPA enterprise
