Free simple network monitoring software?

by sup909 / March 30, 2006 7:18 AM PST

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.

My router has a web page that I can see what machines are connected. If it's not mine...
