Dear 'Assembled,'
may I ask how you might solve this.
Context: 1. in reference to the above ... and ...
2. What made me take note of this particular thread is that when I see the lights blinking on my network switch I often wonder how can I find out who/what process is carrying on the "conversation" and with "whom."
..not just on the wireless but on the network in general.


ps, Rick, is it correct to assume that you were reluctant to answer because knowing how you monitor your network would give an intruder
a head start on thwarting it?
