at my home I have both workstations directly use Ethernet cables to connect to router, and also a few laptops/mobile devices that connect to wifi. Is there a command in linux to see list of all devices accessing wifi/network? Thanks in advance, sorry for bad english.

open your terminal and type this

sudo apt-get install nmap 

then type as

sudo nmap -sP 

so it will search all the devices from the range of – .

Hope that helps .

nmap -sP (where - your subnet). If you need other scan method, not ping - read man nmap.
