Router Alert -- When a specific PC connects

Router Alert -- When a specific PC connects

Router Alert -- When a specific PC connects

This may not be the correct forum. If so, please let me know where it should be posted.

So, I have a home network using a TrendNet wireless router. Everything is configured correctly and functional. I am using MAC address filtering to allow/disallow connections to the network.

But, what I need to do know is to have the have an alert sent when a specific PC connects to the router. I don't want to block this unit, I just need to know that it has connected.

Is this possible?

If so, can someone point me in the direction of some good instructions. I am PC/App savy but I don't ever get an opportunity to do much on the networking side.

Thanks in advance
