Re: Can I view active connections?

The easiest way probably would be to look in /proc/net/prism2/wlan0 (or wlan1, and so on).

Within this directory you'll see 0 byte files that have a filename of the MAC address of an associated station. WDS links also show up here, too, at least in the last version I used. Anyway, I don't know how to tell WDS appart from a station, but that's the location to see who's on your AP.

To get stats regarding that particular association, simply cat the file. That is 'cat 00:0f:ee:1b:ad:00' -- you'll see output to your termimal with several counters keeping track of all sorts of usefull data. Have fun.
