Wireless monitoring
My Organisation is looking for some software or a way to monitor our open wireless network. We have a few access points spread around the building and we woud like a method of tracking and keeping a record of IP addresses leased and associated Mac addresses for at least 10 days. 
Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I am just guessing over here. If you leave your AP on 24hrs, you can see the listing that has been connected….you can even keep logs and set the amount of time for IP leased to a user.

    Questions that should be asked - Are the AP's centrally Managed? If this is yes then the central control software will have the relevant logs if it is set to log them. ir No well are you using a seperate DHCP server for the OPEN network (please say yes) if this is the case then you would have the DHCP server log the IP's , MAC addresses etc. If you are not seperating your normal network with your open then I must warn you this is a huge issue with security. A seperate Firewalled network model would always be advisable.

    Most wireless APs have a logging option. If they support SNMP, you can forward the traps to an SNMP logging server. Checking the local logs per device is do-able, but time-consuming. Best option is to have the devices report their logs to a central server...
