I'm in need of a simple scanner that can tell me what IP a network devise is using
I need to run it on a laptop to troubleshoot sites running wireless bridges and access points that have lost connection. Prefer something simple and free

I've used it for years, it's small and it works.  If you need to do an in-depth scan then you can use nmap (Windows version is Zenmap).
