How to know which devices are connected to a Wi-Fi router? Is there a way to know how many and/or which devices are connected to a router connected to windows PC?

    One more for Wireless Network Watcher

    I especially like its "Background Scan" option with beep when new device is connected.

    or you can actually use your router's web based-management to see what devices are connected to it.
    Usually you can access it via http://192.168.1.1/ or http://192.168.0.1/

    You'll need to log onto the router and find out. You'll need to use a web browser, point it at the router (usually named something like 192.168.0.1), type in the admin username and password and find the information. Most routers keep the information in two places:

    1. Activity log. Almost (or perhaps all) routers have a log, and by studying it you can find, amongst other things, all the connection details on the WiFi network.
    2. Much simpler, but implemented in different ways on different routers, there's usually a list of all devices which have connected to the network, often with the option of adding them to a white list, black list or reserving an IP for them. On my router (a Netgear model) it's under Advanced/IP Filtering, but it could just as well be labelled "LAN", "WiFi", "Security", "DHCP" or something else. It's basically a matter of looking through your router's pages (or reading the manual, heaven forbid!).
