How can I see which others devices are using my Wi-Fi? Is there software to accomplish this task?
If you can login to your router you can see mac addresses and IPs of the devices. or use a IP scanner. If you have an android device use the app, "Fing" it can scan network Clients.
Fing Network Tools by overlook, from the google play store, it works for me and is super easy to use, christine
As Jan and Michael point out, the obvious solution is to look in the LAN or WiFi sections or of your router's interface. You could also look at the log for more information (when they connected etc).
If you want to see who is connected _right now_ you'd need to "listen" to the WiFi network with a utility such as Wireless Network Watcher from NirSoft (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_network_watcher.html).
you can use tool called "Wireless Network Watcher" ; it'll tells you which devices are using your home network.
Use Look@Lan Network Monitor

The best way would be to log in to your router and see what devices have received an IP address. Most of the time the name of the device will be descriptive enough to know who it is depending on how well you know your neighbors.
This is also where you can block their access if you want to.
Look at your connection information details and the default gateway will normally be your router. Type that address into your web browser. i.e. http://192.168.1.1
The login and password are normally on a sticker on the side of the router if it is supplied by your ISP.
The easiest way is to open up your router/access points web- or configuration interface. There should be a status page that shows currently connected clients.
Other options are the DHCP lease list or the page where you configure MAC filtering (wireless security) usually contains list of connected clients.
You may not always be able to identify the device immediately as they are often listed only with the local IP address and the MAC address but no DNS name.
