Is there any way to tell how many people are using your wireless network?

Just look at your router's web interface and see who's connected.

Router's web interface

Bob is right, but to add a little more. The link/button you will be looking for in the router setup page is "DHCP Clients Table". The name might be slightly differnt.

This should show the Client Host Name, IP address, MAC address, and when the Lease expires of each device connected to the router.

history of usage?

I see how the above shows who is currently logged on, but is there a log anywhere that shows a history of devices connected? I have a tablet and we just recently got a new cable modem that is also a wireless router and so now I'm wondering, are the devices using the apple router still or the new modem/router to connect. I'd like to go back in the last week and check the stats.
