Free simple network monitoring software?

Anyone know of a simple program that will allow me to see what connections are connected to my wireless network?

I have a sneaky suspicion that someone has gotten onto my network and is syphoning internet bandwidth off, but I don't want to go through the hassle of re-configuring my network if I don't have to. Yes, I do have it password protected/encrypted. This is just my personal wireless network in my apartment.
