Way to monitor WiFi connection attempts?

Specs: Linux
I was prompted to ask this in part by a question someone else asked
here a couple of weeks ago.

Is there an easy way to automatically log attempts to connect to my
WiFi, so that I can see whether anyone else is trying to connect to it?
My current setup is a wireless modem/router which connects to the
Internet via 4G and to my Android 4.4.2 tablet via WiFi.

Not that I know of but someone else may.

I think it matters more whether anybody has actually managed to break into it rather then the number that have tried. Best bet is to have a long and tedious Wifi pass key and the same for the router access password. A nice mix of oddball characters will get the risk right down. Use WPA2 for the Wifi.

This looked interesting:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Your router logs don't show activity?
On my D-Link router I can activate logs showing (wireless) login attempts that are successful or failed with the reason why it failed.
