from command line type ipconfig, heres mine............

C:\Documents and Settings\PeteLong>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

        Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 3:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.101
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

Look in the WAP at the connected devices and make notes of the Mac ADDRESSES.

you can also use a Packet sniffer to view all packets being transmitted on the WLAN, or check the routers DHCP records for new computers...

Mac OS X? or OS 9?

Not sure about OS9, but OS X you should be able to find a Linux based Packed Sniffer.

If you are using a broadband router you should be able to access it with just a web browser, to view DHCP leases

I'm using OS X. I can see the IP's listed in the DHCP Client List. I would like to have a utility however to monitor the bandwidth usage and time online, etc. Something user friendly.

I think the utility question to monitor bandwidth usage, time online, etc. is a seperate question.  The original question was how to see them.
