    Hi every1.

    I'm wondering if there is a way to tell which base station I am connecting to my network through.
    my setup is one timecapsule which is creating the network and it is extended by another airport express through ethernet. The network is 5ghz N only if that makes any difference. I was wondering if there is an application or some other way (terminal??) of finding out which one my computer is connecting to.

    Thanks in advance.:D

    Click on the Airport icon on the menu bar while holding Option, it will show you the Base station ID you're connecting to.
