i did a search but came up empty handed. i cant seem to figure out how to see who is connected to my computer. my WEP key is very weak and i believe that its easy to hack it to gain access to the computer so i wanna see the users connected to my wireless Ad Hoc connection. any help is appreciated.

I dont really know but you could try changing your password, And if possible forget about WEP and use either WPA or WPA2 if your equipment supports it.

Log in to your router and look for an item like "Logs".
Look for something like "Connected Clients".
As dave09 suggested, change from WEP to WPA.
Also consider enabling "MAC Filtering".

these guys that replied are idoits. They don't know what adhoc network is. I'd say look up on the Network tab and see which computers are connected. I'm sure if you know a few more network commands on the dos prompt might help.
