    Hey guys

    I want to share my internet connection from my ethernet modem through Airport.

    How can I tell from my iMac that I have successfully connected my iPhone to the mac?

    Or how can I tell if another iPhone from somewhere else isn't stealing my network?

    Will they show up in the finder?

    Thanks if you guys can help me out that would be cool.

    I think you have to find the MAC address of the device, then use the Airport utility to see if that mac address is connected.

    I'm not sure...
