Belkin Wireless Router Client LIst

The DHCP Client does not refresh with a list of current connections. This happens even if I click the refresh button. The list shows ALL connections, including those clients who were previously connected. How can I show only those devices which are currently connected to the wireless router? The only way it can happen just now is if I power off the router, which is pretty pointless !

Help appreciated, thanks

The dhcp client list is not for checking current connections, but leases. As an address is leased for a period of time, it shows until the lease ends (or power is removed)
I am not sure if your router provides a host, or current connections, list, but this is what you are looking for.

Just for clarity, do you mean that this will only clear when the router is rebooted ?

The DHCP list will clear when rebooted, or when the IP lease expires. Usually several days.
