If your Wi-Fi network is running slow then your WiFi password might have been hacked and other devices might have connected to your WiFi network. So, to be sure you have to find out how many devices are connected to your Wi-Fi network. Below are the two ways.
By logging into the Router’s page:- Now different routers have different address to log into. You can search in Google for your router’s login address or check the manual. I have Linksys WRT120N. So, for all the Linksys router the address for logging in is http://192.168.1.1
Enter the above address in the browser’s address bar.
Now you will be asked to enter the user name and the password for the router. So enter the required credentials.
Then click on “Status” tab.
Click on “Local Network”.
Click on “DHCP client Table” button.
Now you can see the list of the devices connected to your WiFi network. You can check the MAC address to make sure that those are your devices.
The second method to find the devices connected to your Wireless internet is by using a third-party software called “Wireless Network Watcher”.
Download the software from http://download.cnet.com/.
Search for the software, download and install it.
Run the “Wireless Network Watcher”.
Now you can see the MAC address of all the devices connected to your Wireless network.
