    Hi.
    I would like to know if there is some application (like "Zamzom Wireless Network Tool" on Windows) for Snow Leopard to monitor your own wireless wifi network, eventually giving you an alarm when someone connects, giving the relative IPs (and possibly Mac-address as well) connected to your network so in the case an "unwanted intruder" breaks in your network, it would be possible to identify him/her with police/ISP and denounce him/her. Possibly free. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks ;)

    The router model is: Netgear DG834G
    I use WPA2 protection for wireless.

    Thanks, I'll give a careful look at it.
    It has a web interface and I'm already using it quite often. ;)
    So there aren't any applications who can help monitor your router without using the web interface for MacOS?

    Wireshark can sniff your network. I don't know if it can do everything you ask, though.

    IP Scanner will tell what devices are connected to your wifi network. It's free from the App store.
