Is there any way to check who is connecting to my hotspot? I am using a rooted Samsung Galaxy SII.

I use the SII's tethering feature in: Settings > Wireless and network > Tethering and portable hotspot > Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings > Portable Wi-Fi hotspot to create my hotspot.

It depends what app you are using for your hotspot. Are you paying for the hotspot? Or are you rooted using the free tether app? More information please. –  Mr. Monkey Jan 20 '12 at 2:59
@Mr.Monkey: I've updated my question. See the 3rd paragraph. –  geffchang Jan 20 '12 at 3:33
maybe post a screenshot of the menu inside your tethering app? –  jlehenbauer May 23 '12 at 18:55

As mentioned in a comment it really depends on what app you are using to provide tethering.

On the stock HTC tethering app there is a view called "Manage users" which lets you see a list of connected devices listed be resolved host name. Touching each device reveals its hardware address and currently assigned IP address.HTC tethering app - manage users

As far as I can recall it is the same for the stock Samsung G S2 (at least in this region - northern europe).

There's nothing like this for Galaxy SII. I suppose I have to accept this as an answer, but I would appreciate it if somebody could recommend an app I could use for this purpose. –  geffchang Jan 26 '12 at 7:48
