How do I find the ip address of devices on my network
I am looking for a program (free) that will display a tree of my home network showing all the devices and if a device has an ip address display that as well. Does anyone know of such a program and could you point me to it so I can get it? If not free I might be willing to spend $10 or $15 but no more.

Thanks,

Steve

P.S. I would like something that does this in human talk not tech. talk. You know show a ip address and then the device name Printer, simple like that. I tried ipscan and it didn't give me a single bit of info. that I could translate to what my printer ip address was.

Angy IP Scanner is a free program that will list all devices by IP address that are in a range of IP addresses that you specify. Any kind of network hub or switch will not show up.

Note regarding Angry IP Scanner, if your anti-spyware program warns it is a hacktool, ignore the warning (it is not).

I have used The Dude by Mikrotik and have had good luck with it.

Thanks for the response, it must have been before my PS. I tried ipscan and it didn't get me anything I could understand or translate to a device on my network. I see stuff like:
Hostname: secure.hurikan.sk
Hostname: a3.ba-posam.sh.cust.gts.sk
topsport.cust.nextra.sk

Information that means nothing to me and in no way tell me what the devices are on the network.

The Dude worked and the reason ipScan didn't work was I put in the wrong ip address.

All is well, thanks a lot.

Re-run it, but before scanning the IP address range click Options, Select Columns. Select "Comp. Name" then click the >> button, then OK
