Figure 5-5: Available Wireless Station List
For each device, the table shows the Station ID, MAC address, IP Address, and Status (whether the device is allowed to communicate with the wireless access point or not).
Management and Information 202-10101-01, May 2005 5-5
Note that if the wireless access point is rebooted, the table data is lost until the wireless access point rediscovers the devices. To force the wireless access point to look for associated devices, click the Refresh button. Note: A wireless network can include multiple wireless access points, all using the same network name (SSID). This enables extending the reach of the wireless network and lets users roam from one access point to another, providing seamless network connectivity. Under these circumstances, be aware that only the stations associated with this access point will be presented in the Available Station List.

As a 21st-century consumer, computers are an integral part of your life. But does your home computing environment work for you?
