One Answer:


You could try a tool like Kismet which will show you what clients are associated with which AP, but you'd need to be in range. Or you could do a Wireshark capture and find out yourself, but it would be more work than using a WLAN scanner like Kismet - and still you'd need to be in range.

Best solution would be to have APs running that have some kind of reporting functionality. If yours do not have that, you'll have to monitor access like I just described.
