How To Check Who is Connected To My Wifi Router

Home wireless internet

Do you know who’s connected to your router’s Wi-Fi network? Take a look at the list devices connected to your Wi-Fi network from your router or computer to find out.
Bear in mind that many devices connect to your Wi-Fi these days. The list will contain laptops, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, set-top boxes, game consoles, Wi-Fi printers, and more.

Use Your Router’s Web Interface

The best way to find this information will be to check your router’s web interface. Your router hosts your Wi-Fi network, so it has the most accurate data about which devices are connected to it. Most routers offer a way to view a list of connected devices, although some may not.
The standard tips for accessing your router’s web interface apply. If you’re not sure of its IP address, you can generally look for your computer’s gateway IP address via the Control Panel. You could also run the ipconfig /all command in a Command Prompt window.

ipconfig – Quickly Find Your IP Address

You can find your IP address from the Control Panel, but this takes quite a few clicks. The ipconfig command is a fast way of determining your computer’s IP address and other information, such as the address of its default gateway — useful if you want to know the IP address of your router’s web interface.
To use the command, just type ipconfig into a Command Prompt window. You’ll see a list of all the network connections your computer is using. Look under Wireless LAN adapter if you’re connected to Wi-Fi or Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection if you’re connected to a wired network.

Next, plug this IP address into your web browser’s address bar and press Enter. This should usually bring up your router’s interface. If it doesn’t, check your router’s documentation — or perform a web search for its model number and “web interface” to find out how to access it. If you haven’t set a custom password and passphrase, you may need to perform a search or check the documentation to find the default ones for your model of router.

Finding the List of Connected Devices

You’ll now need to look for the option in your router’s web interface somewhere. Look for a link or button named something like “attached devices,” “connected devices,” or “DHCP clients.” You may find this on the Wi-Fi configuration page, or you may find it on some sort of status page. On some routers, the list of connected devices may be printed on a main status page to save you some clicks.
On many D-Link routers, a list of connected devices is available under Status > Wireless.


On many Netgear routers, you’ll find the list under “Attached Devices” in the sidebar.


On many Linksys routers, you’ll find this option under Status > Local Network > DHCP Clients Table.


On Comcast Xfinity routers, you’ll find the list under Connected Devices in the sidebar.
