Windows 7: Viewing Network devices

Viewing Network devices

I just switched computers, upgraded from XP to W7. I had "Linksys Easylink" on my only computer, but can't seem to find the disk. It brought up a diagram of network status, showing my Wii, WRT54G, Computer, & Phone adapter. Is there "somewhere" in W7 that brings up devices connected to the router? All I get is this:

All I get doing that is: Tom-Home-----Gateway-----Internet
I know I have a PAP2, and Wii connected, not showing up (yet both function).

Edit: I downloaded the new version of Easylink Advisor ("LELA"), and after figuring out which MAC address belonged to which device, it's back to what I am use to seeing. It does seem to use a bit of resources, so I leave it off unless I want to check status. I just would have thought there would be a way in W7 network settings to "see" other devices, like my VIP722 (wired), and Wii (wireless).
