Windows 7: How to 'see' ALL devices on LAN

How to 'see' ALL devices on LAN

Hi all

I would really like to know how to see all the devices that are connected to a specific router. I know in windows, command prompt, you say: net view, and it will display all the pc's connected to the router/in the LAN, but it DOES NOT SHOW the smartphones connected to that same router.
I have 3 laptops connected via WiFi, I can see them, but I cannot see the 4 smartphones I have that is also connected to the LAN. How can I see them as well?

I know that they have IPv6 addresses assigned to them, is that the problem(that they do not have IPv4 adressess?)

your router should have a function which shows you all connected devices, along with the IP addresses.

for example, here's mine:

Name:  conn3.PNG
Views: 75
Size:  26.3 KB

unfortunately my router's firmware is a bit buggy, and doesn't always get the device names right - thanks BT!

what router are you using?

As Mickey Megabyte suggested, your router will probably have an ARP table showing the mac addresses and IP addresses.
