What does "inactive" mean in the network management console

I've got several wireless PCs connected to the wireless router.  Several of them say "active", some others say "inactive".  What does inactive mean?   I can't see the inactive ones on the network - but i can see the network from the ones who are inactive...

Re: What does "inactive" mean in the network management console

I have the same thing in my networking section. I believe it tmeans those devices are off or asleep, hibernating. My nooks show inactive because they are off i believe. I was in networking tonight because I was trying to figure out why my Ipad wont stay connected to the internet and I notice it also had my Iphone inactive. I had it locked and I guess you can say asleep.I noticed after I unlocked it which also brings it up it took a minute but then it showed active. Now I have to hope that what I did will keep my Ipad connected It is a new router they sent so it was set at a default of 5 devices and we have more than that so I maxed it out. Anyway I believe it just means those devices are down in some form. If I am wrong hopefully someone will post. I noticed when I came her with my issue yours had been here a few days with out an answer.
