How Can I Check Number of Current Connections on Airport Extreme?

I use an Apple Airport Extreme to provide Wifi access. In most router web interfaces I've used before, I can go to a Status page where, among other things, I can see how many clients or computers are currently connected to the router.

I can't see how to do that in the AirPort Utility?

Try the Logging Tab under the Advanced Tab.

Yes, there is a Logs & Wireless Clients option under the Advanced tab. However when I click on either the Logs or Wireless Clients, I get an error message about the password. Attached is a screenshot. Error message when I click on Logs in AP Utility.

Try connecting directly to the Airport Express with a network cable. Unless you want your router to be public, you might want to follow the instructions and set a password.

To get to that information on my AirPort Extreme, I do the following. It may be different for the Express.

Open AirPort utility. Click manual setup. I then see the airport summary page. Near the bottom it says, "Wireless Clients:" followed by the number of wireless clients. If I want to see a list of the clients, I click on the words "Wireless Clients" and it takes me to a page with 3 tabs; Logs, Wireless Clients, and DHCP Clients. DHCP clients gives me a list of the computer names.

This worked when I connected via Ethernet cable. Don't know why it didn't work via Wifi?
