Find devices connected to your AirPort base station without AirPort Utility 5.6
Authored by: leichter on Aug 21, '13 09:11:27PM
In the latest AirPort Utility, hold down the Option key while double-clicking to select a device. You'll get (more or less) the same display as was present in AirPort Utility 5.6. In particular, the you'll see the MAC addresses of all connected devices.

(Found this recently on the 318 TechJournal blog.)

BTW, I own a very old AirPort Express (-g only). Still handy to use at times. The latest AirPort Utility doesn't support it - it will show it in the nice GUI picture, but if you double-click on it, it suggests using AirPort Utility 5.6. It looks as if Apple will keep that available for a while yet....

Option double-click adds an extra tab to the setup screen called Summary, but I'm not seeing anything which isn't available by single-clicking on the AirPort Extreme and hovering the cursor over the client list -- in particular I'm not seeing wired clients.

Cool, thanks, I hadn't figured out the option double click yet.

I used to have this AppleScript that opened Airport Utility and each of my access points to the page listing the wireless connections. It arranged everything on the desktop along with a key to match the Mac addresses to the names.

I was pretty disappointed that the old utility doesn't work in Mavericks. It makes the device less useful, I really don't know what they were thinking. We have Extremes at my office and configure them with Windows but might have to stop buying them if this is the direction Apple is going in.
