    I do believe that he is looking for a way to detect when a device connectes to the router via the WLAN in order to trigger a secondary process on another machine.

    This a quite different from just knowing that is is just one.


    I would look at having the laptop itself send a message to the linux computer when it connects to the router.

    One way that I could see it being done is a logon session to the linux box being initated by the laptop upon association with the AP. The linux box sees this and runs a scipt on inital log-in.

    Last thing is not possible to cuz we have smartphones too that i want to check. So is there anyone who know how i can ask my Linksysrouter if client1 is connected.

    My wife and i watched star wars yesterday and my wife asked me if i can do so that imperial march is played when she connects to the network. So the only thing i need now is a check is client1 connected on wlan. I want to use it to my homeautomation system if no clients are conencted turn off all lights.

    The command "wl assoclist" should display clients if connected. Have fun with it in your scripts.
