Default SIMPLE network monitoring tool

In response to what knuttle wrote :

Is there a SIMPLE piece of software that will allow me to tell what
devices are using my local area network.

I don't know the answer, but it is a good question, worth the combined
effort of the group to arrive at a better answer, where let's hope someone
_already_ uses a good free network scanner they can recommend for us.

On Android, I have a ton of network tools, some of which "might" have
Windows equivalents...

Looking at Android and seeing if any of those apps are on Windows, I found:
o Fing
o Metageek inSSIDer
o Nmap

Personally, I don't need this information on Windows, but my router will
tell me that information. Looking now, I see my router provides a table
organized by wired & then not wired, and then by MAC address & IP Address,
both of which are incomplete tables.

Of course, MAC addresses have a first half that tells you the manufacturer
if you're lucky, but overall, I find that information less helpful than you
would likely want it to be.

Googling a bit, there's also
o WiFiHistoryView by Nirsoft
o NetSurveyor
o ZenMap
o NetCrunch
o Angry IP Scanner
o Simple IP Config
o HoverDesk
o sn0int
o Masscan
o eToolz
o WakeMeOnLan from NirSoft
o IP Address Tracker
o WinMTR
o Advanced Port Scanner
o DipIPsoft
o Cisco FindIT Network Discovery Utility
o SoftPerfect Network Scanner
o Advanced IP Scanner

And lots more at:

Maybe one of those will be used by the cc list who can advise us?
Usenet should be a public archive of useful polite technical discussions.

Apparently not today...
