It could be a four-step program.

1. Learn what your MAC address is (nothing to do with Leo 10.5.2).
2. Learn how to enable logging in your access point.
3. Learn how to read the logs.
4. If you see another MAC address than your own, then someone is suspect.
4b. This may be the wrong site for breaking into networks.

network usage analysis is best done on the network itself. the "crackability" of something is moot if they know your WAP-2 AES-256 password, because its "password". (note to self, change password. oh, i said it again!)

wireshark ( ) works on macs, if you're not comfortable with your built in tcpdump.

that is most certainly true.
