Hello everyone,

Can someone help me find a way to query the devices attached to my network to get their network cards MAC address.

My networks devices are at 192.168.10.0 IP range.

I'm looking for a command or tool that would list these for me.

Thanks.

if they are all on the same segment you can type "arp -a" at a command prompt, but it rarely gives them all in my opinion

Thanks for the reply. That's close. But it only shows some of them.

It looks like the -N option for APR might do it but I can't get it to work.

Any more ideas?

Download and install netscan, is free, and it has option to show the mac address. Can be found here: http://www.softperfect.com/

The only problem with this is that is not working well on computers with Intel Pentium IV at 2800 MHz and over, but new version is expected.
