If you have the typical DSL router with wifi, if you want to see a list of people using the wifi, you have to use a computer wired to the router, is that right?

If you're using just anybody's wifi with a laptop, how do you find out stuff about their router? Like the speed and even the company of the router?

Totally different subject: ATT used to sell broadband with different speeds for different prices. Today I went to their site and they don't mention speeds at all. It just says "up to 50M." Do they just have the same router and the same speed for everybody?

No.

You would need to know the login and password, assuming that the owner has taken at least the most basic step of securing it by setting that up correctly.

every ATT dsl router has its login and password label on the side. You can access their interface from any device just as long as your connected to it via wifi or hardwire.
