For example. If you have a home wifi network and know that there are two laptops, a PS3 and an iphone connected to the network, how can you verify that these are the only devices that are connecting? I know the easy answer is to make sure your network is secured with a password to prevent a neighbor from connecting to your network, but i want to know if its possible to check the device connections, or if there is a program that allows you to monitor how many devices are connecting and see what they are. Thank you

You can use a packet sniffer to monitor all the traffic on your network. One of the most easy to use sniffer is Wire Shark. It shows you IP address, Protocol and also the headers and contents of the packet.
Cain N Abel is also a good one.

it depends on what router you are using, but from a web browser, u can go to

http://192.168.1.1 (or whatever your ip address for your router is)

then log into it with

admin:password

there should be a place that you can view the current activity.

If you are using Norton Internet Security, it has a Network Security Map feature that lists all devices that are currently connected to your network.
