New utility that shows who is connected to your wireless network

Wireless Network Watcher is a new utility that scans your wireless network and displays the list of all computers and devices that are currently connected to your network.
For every computer or device that is connected to your network, the following information is displayed: IP address, MAC address, the company that manufactured the network card, and optionally the computer name.
You can also export the connected devices list into html/xml/csv/text file, or copy the list to the clipboard and then paste into Excel or other spreadsheet application.

    The utility seems to be sending our arp requests so works on lan as well as wireless. It also finds my blackberry ok.

    @tkg : My BB seems to connect when it feels like it, its not a constant connection, so it might explain why it missed your Android if it works the same way. Try doing a scan while using the browser.

    I installed the new 1.1 version. On 1.0 my iPAD and iPod weren't found. Initially, I thought 1.1t was no different, but I did further experimenting. If my Apple iPad was actively transmitting data (eg: visibly loading a web page at the very moment I clicked your scan button), the iPad IP address displayed in the list. However, if my iPad was only on, connected via WiFi to the router, but SEEMINGLY not actively transmitting or receiving, it did not show. I put the word SEEMINGLY in the last sentence because occasionally, even when the iPad seemed idle (but on), it still showed in your list. I suspect that in this case there were behind the scenes internet transactions going on. The iPad has applications that monitor for unsolicited application related internet traffic. Otherwise, there is still an intermittent bug.

    Now that we can see who is on, how doe we get rid of what we do not like to see on the report?
    I have a Hon Hai Precision Ind. showing, and it appears to be connected to my Dell somehow. Can anyone advise me as to why a Chinese concern is constantly showing?? It shows my computer name (Wistron), and my Cisco router name, and my printer. But no Identifying name for the Hon Hai name!

    Just the MAC ADDRESS for Hon Hai Precision. What electronic item could this be related to?

    Nice. But it does not detect my smartphone (Anndroid) when connected to my wifi router.
    Any idea ?

    Hon Hai Precision could be any number of devices since they manufacture for EVERYONE. They are better known by their trade name FOXCONN. It's not likely to be an Apple device since they like to brand the cards that are made for them, but it could be an HP notebook, Kindle, or anything else that FOXCONN puts cards in.

    It's the NIC for your AP
