[isf-wifidog] Identifying MAC addresses

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I'm writing in English and not French - I'm Irish.

I am very interested in enabling WifiDog to lock down a rural wireless
network so that only our authorised customers can connect to the local
hill-top antennas and we'll allow them access by their MAC address - this
seems to work fine via the "TrustedMACAList" directive in wifidog.conf

Currently we have quite a lot of customers and we didn't keep a record of
their MAC addresses (silly I know).

Does anyone know if there is some way for me to identify the MAC addresses
of associated customers?

I'm using Metrix Pyramid Linux on PC Engines WRAP boards.  Metrix Pyramid
is using madwifi but I can't find a way to get a listing of associated
clients - I'm sure this should be easy enough?

Is there a way to get a list of associated users via a Linux wireless
command or perhaps is there a way I can start Wifidog in a debug mode to
view content requests by client and get the MAC addresses that way?

thanks for any help!
