Hi svoltmer,

Check the properties of each connection, you should let it put an icon on the taskbar when connected.
Now, doubleclick the icons on the taskbar to see at what speed it's connected. If it's not 10/100/1000Mbit, you have selected the wireless one.

Greetings,

One would assume that if your running dhcp, that there is a log of who is connected

with a wireless router,  you can check within the router from the main connected station.  just goto the router IP of 192.168.x.x,  one should be able to check to see if there is someone connected.

for increased security,  specify what mac addresses are able to connect to the wireless,  it should do what you want it to do.

Well  with the  microsoft  router  you would  log  into  the  router  and  you  want  to see  the  DHCP  table   and that will give  you the  IP address  and  also the computer name of  all  on the network  currently.  If  you  are worried  about others   gettign access  to your   files and  printer  you can  setup   mac  address  filtering  to   make sure all  and   also   your  workgroup name   AKA  network name  not  the SSID you make the workgroup name  very unique that  would be   hard to crack and  that  will help in   file security.


Let me know if this helps
