Connected devices to livebox


[link to this post]
 
I must be missing something here but I have tried to find the list of wired connected devices to the livebox but am only presented with a list of MAC addresses. Is there a page that shows the IP addresses of connected devices?

I just simply want to get into the GUI of one of the devices to make some changes. I suppose I could start at xx.xx.xx.2 until I hit gold but that could take some time!

Any help would be much appreciated.

You could try a program like this: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/netresview.html if you're on windows. There seem to be quite a few freeware programs although I have never tried them

You can find the network IP addresses with ipconfig /all

At a guess it is for a device that is not running windows/osx/linux console but a settop box, printer, ipcam or similar

I should just point out, the program that I linked to scans an IP range and shows any devices that are active.

How about a TV set top box that has no workgroup/domain or concept of network based file sharing?

If the device has an IP, which it will need, then yes. I guess it would have to respond to pings, but what would be the point in having a network connected device that didn't let other devices 'talk' to it!

I haven't got a Windows PC up and running at the moment so can't test this, but I used to use a program called WS Ping Pro on windows. That detected my TV, phones, Slingbox, Wii and all PCs.

On linux you can use 'nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/24' to scan everything on 192.168.1.*

Interesting, but doesn't fit the bill frown

Doesn't see my Internet Radio which is on my router's LAN but not visible from my PC, so won't see OP's required devices.

A list of connected devices by IP addy should be present somewhere in router's GUI. It is for all my routers, incl. Orange Seimens, so should be in Livebox but I'm not familiar with that one.

As XRaySpecX pointed out did not see a radio, and that is to be expected given how Ethernet switches and things work.

Only the router can really identify all devices on the network (or if you have an old Ethernet hub), or a managed switch (read expensive)
