detect client disconnecting ...

I have been trying to find a way of detecting WLAN client joining and leaving the HostAP. So I chose to monitor /proc/net/prims2/wlan0 directory and observe the mac addresses being added or removed.

I notice however it takes quite long to remove the MAC address for a client who has already left (about 5min). Is there any better way of doing this? Or can I shorten that lag time?
