I would use nbtscan. you can get it from here
http://www.inetcat.org/software/nbtscan.html
the download link is udner the INstallation section.

syntax is....
nbtscan.exe 192.168.21.1-255

This will open up a dos window and give you every IP in your range from 1-255, netbios names and MAc addresses. Just change the IP range.

You did download the win32 binaries version, right? I should have mentioned that.
Create you a folder c:\whoisloggedon
Place nbtscan.exe and cygwin1.dll in c:\whoisloggedon
Edit your PATH statement:
example is XP:
right click on MY COMPUTER and click on ADVANCED tab.
at the bottom click on ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES button.
CAREFULL here.....DO not erase any current values. I you do.....hit cancel
In the system varialbles list (second box) locate PATH
Highlihgt Path and lick EDIT.
click in the VARIABLE VALUE field
Move to the end of the file and type this exactly
;c:\whoisloggedon\cygwin1.dll
Click OK
CLick OK
Click OK
Reboot your machine

Create you a file "whoisloggedon.cmd" with text editor and put this in it, changing the IP range to yours

cd\WhoIsLoggedOn
nbtscan.exe -v 192.168.21.1-255
pause

Now run that and see if you get the results like mentioned on the website.
No switces, like above, gives you
IP
netbiosname
Server
User logged on (if detectable)
MAc Address

I just tested this on XP with the version on the web page.

Another little advantage is you can download the gui verion at this link and not have to create/run the command line version.
http://www.inetcat.org/software/gui.exe
Download it
unzip the gui.exe file into c:\whoisloggedon
now, run gui.exe by double clicking it or adding a shortcut to it on your desktop
