how to find wlan clients list(solution)

I am also thankful to nirjharoberoi for the post. that post worked as a hint for me to find the client list.
I typed the router address 192.168.X.X, gave user name and password=admin, clicked advanced settings>DHCP>DHCP clients list and I was able to see all the clients connected.

I thank you too nirjharoberoi. I am glad that old posts can be brought up to solve problems. I have an HTC HD7 Windows Phone and there is no place in the phone to view the MAC address. I just connected my phone to the network, went to 192.168.1.x/wclient.htm and found it. THANK YOU!!

p.s. Hangdog42, you will never annoy me again cuz I only registered to say thanks to nirjharoberoi for bringing up old posts.

Thanks nirjharoberoi,

This is exactly what I was looking for. Although this thread is six years old now, I'm glad nirjharoberoi did dig it up. His simple answer was the solution rather than Hangdog42's long winded technical answer. Perhaps that's why he's so worked up and looking forward to irritating people.

Because heaven help us if someone actually learns something around here. I'll be sure to stick to simple answers to your questions.

Oh, and welcome to LQ.

Looks like you have quite a following here on LQ, Hangdog42! hehehehehe

Those "long winded technical answer"(s) are just a bit much for some people I suppose. It's more than a bit odd seeing people criticize you for trying to help.

I'd like to offer a hearty thanks for your efforts here. I find the "long winded technical answer"(s) are more useful than the dumbed down approach for the challenged, and honor our forum as it should be.

John

Thanks for the vote of support John. It is quite a fan club I've got going in this thread, isn't it. They don't even stick around long enough for me to get in a good RTFM!

This didn't work for me. I have the same router as the original poster (linksys WRT54G).

I'm assuming I should be looking for the advanced settings under the "wireless" tab since that is really the only thing that comes close to the description. However, I don't see any option to click "DHCP".

Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Are those that are having success using a different router? Am I looking in the wrong place?

I definitely appreciate all the work that you moderators do. I have to say though that over the years I have seen a lot of complaints about "necroposting" and I have never understood why the age of the post matters. I see from reading this thread that I am not alone. I realize that some topics are time sensitive, but if I'm having the exact same issue as someone that posted 10 years ago, what difference does it make how old it is? If I do a google search and a 10 year old post comes up as the first link, obviously google thinks it is relevant. So I just want to respectfully ask the question: Why does it matter?

If you haven't changed the password for your router, then it's still the default password & you can google the default password for admin & user for "almost" any router

Hi,

I have "upgraded" a WRT-54GL to DD-wrt which gives me a list of connected clients (picture attached).

lithos that's pretty sweet.

I found my solution on another site.

I found it under the Status tab, then the Local Network tab, then there is a button for the clients

Status>Local Network>DHCP Clients Table

Hi, once you log to router, go to Status tab/Local Network/DHCP Client Table...If you can't find the list try to enable Incoming Logs under Administration tab.
