The Dude


Overall, I've loved the transition from Windows to Mac. Between the snazzy features, the stability, the performance, and the fact that the machine and the OS seem to be made of pure awesome, I am sold.

This is not to suggest, however, that I am not slightly annoyed.

One of the main things that bugs me about OS X is that I don't seem to have the breadth of access to network information that I do in Windows. For example, I have not yet figured out how to get OS X to tell me when a network cable is plugged in.

More importantly, though, I cannot seem to find an application that allows me to view/monitor my network. There was a specific program I'd use in Windows, called "The Dude," that would go out and find everything that was using my wireless network. It would label each device, show the IP it was using, all all through a nice little visual interface that showed the network in the form of a web of connections.

Anyone run into this point of exasperation? Any solutions?
