For Windows 7, is there, ideally, a small program for the task bar that shows a list of all devices/MAC Addresses that are connected to the wireless router, and perhaps also notifies when a new computer is connected or disconnected?

I already know that it's possible to check connected devices in my wireless router settings.

Possibly unrelated, but I use Fing on my iPod Touch. I just leave it beside my PC. itunes.apple.com/en/app/fing-network-scanner/id430921107?mt=8 –  Sam Jan 4 '13 at 22:34
    
Thanks, I installed Fing on my Galaxy Nexus. It's a really nice tool. –  TheDarkIn1978 Jan 4 '13 at 23:41
    
Great to hear. I've been searching for a similar tool for Windows to no avail, that is my solution for now. I assumed that a network admin would have created a tool, but perhaps not. –  Sam Jan 4 '13 at 23:47
    
it is also available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux, but as Command Line tools. i definitely agree it would be nice if the desktop versions had a GUI like the mobile versions. overlooksoft.com/download –  TheDarkIn1978 Jan 5 '13 at 6:51
