Can Visio 2010 automatically diagram a network using SNMP?

This was a feature in Visio 2000 and 2002, according to the article discussed in this website:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/visio-help/what-happened-to-the-autodiscovery-feature-HA001093558.aspx

However, the article says that this feature was not available in Visio 2003.

Is this feature now available in Visio 2010 or Visio 2007?

I'm looking for a quick, easy, and free way of producing a high quality diagram of my entire network that includes all servers, routers, switches, firewalls, and all other network equipment.

Microsoft has something called - Microsoft Active Directory topology Diagrammer that might be what you are looking for.  As the name implies it uses active directory

I'm not sure that the AD plug in will do what you want; there are various apps which will do this better than visio's own functionality and produce a visio diagram::
