    I'm trying to keep track of wireless clients joining my network. The AirPort Utility "Logs and Statistics" button (under Advanced) allows me to see what DHCP leases are out and a list of wireless clients. But it's very annoying reading a long string of Hex to know which device it is!

    Is there some way to assign a name or label to each MAC address within the Airport Utility?



    And Yes, I could use pen & paper, but what's the fun in that?

    I came in here to ask the same question.

    Seems on obvious oversight on the Wireless Clients screen. Even if it was just an additonal column that contained the label you gave them in the Access screen. For that matter machine name and label would both be useful columns.

    Name MAC Addresses in AirPort Utility

    Russ,
    Any progress on this issue over the past year or so?...
    It is really a pain in the butt to have to constantly endeavour to translate MAC addresses into Client ID's in the Wireless Clients list...

    Client ID is included in the DHCP Clients list...
