How would I find out what computers, by their MAC numbers, have connected to my router?

Is this possible only when the computers are using the router or is there also a memory of what has used it in the past?

Thanks for any help.

You could just use WPA or WPA2 with a password so that others can't use the router without your permission.

Thanks for responding.

I really just want to know how to know what computers are using or have used the router. I don't want to block anything, at least for the moment.

By getting the user manual now of the router I can now see what to do.

The majorgeeks link is very useful.


Thanks to all respondents.
