How do you find out who’s on your WiFi Network?

Sometimes it’s helpful to know who, and what kind of devices are all connected to your wireless wifi network. You can either have confidence that this will never happen or even look at what it’s all about connected to your wireless wifi network.

A handy program for this is for Windows Wireless Network Watcher. This program is completely free and will display all the devices connected to your wireless network in one convenient screen.

The program shows the IP address assigned to the device. The name of the device (note the hostname, not the type of device). The data of the network card, mac address, and device information, eg whether it is your own device.

Wireless Network Watcher runs on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003/2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

Wireless Network Watcher

Wireless Network Watcher only scans devices connected to your own wireless network, it does not have the ability to detect devices connected to another wireless network.

Another handy feature is that Wireless Network Watcher can stay active and notify you when an unknown device logs on to your network in the form of an audio message.

Wireless Network Watcher is designed to scan a wireless network, but can also be used for a wired network. In principle, it can be used to detect all devices on any type of network. The host must be Windows, the program is not for Unix or macOS.
