Default Users on your network

Hi, I just have a question about a home network. Is there a app out there that will allow you to see who's connected on your wireless network?

My wireless is protected by WAP, but you just never know who might be able to access your network!

So I guess what I'm saying, is there a program out there that will allow you to see who's on your network...whether it be by computer name or IP.

i assuming you're connected through a wireless router. what make & model? typically, you can find what users are connected via the config pages. They usually add functions to block specified users from connecting to your network.

otherwise, you'll need to buy a hub and use a packet sniffer to view all traffic on your subnet.
