Do you want to keep the guest mode on? Its possible to monitor users and block them using mac filtering. I'd rather turn the guest mode off, if someone connects and does something unethical the police will arrest you, no questions asked.

yes i will keep it on. but monitoring and blocking them will require to log in to my router again and again. i just want to monitor who is connected to my guest network as well as with my private network also.

I think you can monitor the connections and bandwidth using Networx if your router supports SNMP.
There was a utility called wireshark IIRC for packet sniffing in network.

Do you need continuous monitoring? Then get this app if you have an android phone: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dragonflow

From desktop, you have to login to router then click attached devices.

In any case you have to login to the router to see the list of devices.
