    Well.. I know these are probably some stupid questions but oh well..

    1st Question:

    When I click on my "DHCP Clients Table" I don't see any clients listed although I have computers connected through LAN and WLAN.

    I know they're only in there for a limited amount of time, but I was wondering if I could make it so I can see the DHCP clients permanently without them disappearing?

    I would just like to know what computers are active and what computers aren't active on my network without having to walk around the house.

    2nd Question: I use a MAC Station filter for my network so I can enable the MAC addresses on the clients I allow to connect to my network. What I would like to know, is there a way I can view a client's MAC address in the router config before I input it into the filter table? I'm asking cause I would rather look at what PC's are trying to connect to my network and input the MAC into the table without having to disable the station and let the pc connect then copy the MAC. To simplify things, I'd rather just do it remotely rather then look at the PC or disable the Station filter.

    Is there any way to make it so that I can view client MAC addresses that HAVEN'T been put into my MAC Filter table yet?

    So Question 1: DHCP Clients table always listing PC's connected to the network

    & Question 2: MAC Addresses trying to connect to my network that haven't been entered into the filter table. How can I view them from my Router?

    Thanks guys.
