Device List? Does it work?

    Just installed Tomato 1.28 and I've been playing with it a little to get used to it. In the Device List, I've noticed that the refresh button doesn't seem to work. I press Refresh (set at 3 seconds) and the little circle keeps going round and round and doesn't stop. I can connect with a wireless device (kindle) and it picks it's mac address up but never releases it when I turn off the Kindle's wireless. Am I doing something wrong here?
    Also...I also know that Br0 is Wired Ethernet, eth1 is Active Wireless and Vlan is the modem. When I connect the Kindle to my Access Point's (WAP54G) wireless signal, which is connected to #2 Ethernet, it says it's connected to br0, wired ethernet. Is this because it's coming from Ethernet #2 even though it's wireless? Thanks.

    The MAC will continue to appear in the list until the DHCP lease expires.

    br0 is not wired - it is the bridge connecting wired and wireless.

    Thanks Rodney! That's kinda what I thought...I found the abbreviations in the Tomato manual that said what they meant.

    The device list also uses the "arp table" to know what devices have connected recently, this table remembers a MAC address/IP address pair for about 5 minutes after device disconnection.
