Is there anyway to see all the computers connected and getting a DHCP address from an Airport Extreme Base Station? On my old Linksys router I could do this. I don't know how I can monitor to make sure no one is on my router that shouldn't.

My Extreme is not set up for DHCP so I don't know for sure, but if you're that concerned you could enable MAC address filtering.

Enter the MAC addresses of only the computers you want to grant access to your WIFI connection.

I actually figured it out. I found out if you click on Wireless clients you can see all the DHCP clients which is what I was looking for. That helps a lot. Hopefully it's all I will need.

Open up Airport Utility, click on Manual Setup and click on Wireless Clients.

What version of Airport Utility are you using? I don't recall seeing that on mine. Is it the version that came with the new Airport Extreme?
