I  have a small network with 150 IP addresses in use

Is there an inexpensive program that can ping all teh IP addresses and come back with the hardware ID on each IP address

I have a spreadsheet where I try to keep up with it but I am only 90% doing it manually

Thanks

Not sure whether you're using Windows or Linux, but there are several options.  You can query the switches or use some software from the switch manufacturers, or you can try using nmap (linux).  Try these links:
