Wireless Clients

Wireless Clients report reveals clients connected to your wireless network and what is known about them. If the client name is not available or cannot be determined, the client's MAC address is displayed. The client name is determined by Wi-Fi authentication and may not be present under all authentication schemes.

Select a client and click the Assign Group button to organize clients into an existing wireless client group. You can also click Managing Wireless Client Groups to access the Wireless Client Group library where you can create new groups, edit existing ones, or remove them from the application.
