I'd like my Airport extreme to log everything that happens and who logs into my wireless network. How do I do this?

I believe their is a free program you can get to do this. I'll come back and let you know when I take the time to find it (ie. when I finish my homework).

From the Apple support site:

Open AirPort Admin Utility, select your base station, and click Configure.
Click Base Station Options, and then click Logging/NTP.
Select “Send Base Station Logging to” and enter the IP address of the computer that will receive the base station logs.
Choose a level from the Logging Level pop-up menu.
Select Set Date & Time Automatically and choose a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server from the pop-up menu. You need to assign an NTP server so the log information contains the accurate time.
Not sure if that is what you are looking for, but there are several more links and articles about this sort of thing on Apples support site.

I've looked into this before, but what on the host computer actually receives the log entries? I never looked into it any furthur.

Do you have to have a certain logging daemon installed/running in order for it to log correctly?
