    I know, silly, but it's annoying me I can't figure it out, and my google-foo is failing me.

    It was easy to find that afpd is apple filing protocol daemon and that ascd is automatic channel selector daemon, but this one is eluding me.

    Dang it, nevermind. Wireless Lan Controller. Of course I think of a new search term immediately after posting. FAIL

    In my head I called it WireLess Client, since those connecting and leaving are what triggers the logging.

    Broadcom apparently calls it Wireless LAN Controller also (https://techdocs.broadcom.com/conte...ectrum/10-4/managing-network/wlc-manager.html) so I'm going to guess that's the intent in the firmware. :)
