    There is a terminal command 'findsmb'. It will give you the name and ip of all the computers in your network.

    cheers

    That's only true if the machine is running Windows (with file-sharing enabled) or is a Mac or Linux machine running SAMBA (Windows File Sharing in Apple speak).

    Apple Airport Management Tools

    Download the Apple AirPort Management Tools . This will let you see who is connected to your AirPort base station as well has other abilities.
