    Is anyone aware of an app that will allow me to see the devices on my home network, including devices using my DHCP addresses? I have a mix of both Mac and Window devices as well as printers, servers, routers, and other IP Addressed devices. I know Windows 7 has a built-in map program (it is okay and depending on the day, may see more or less devices than the day before).

    Thanks!

    Your router may allow you to see what's connected. Didn't know Windows 7 could show this, how do you do it in Windows?

    It doesn't work that well, enable network sharing or network visibility.. I forget exactly what it's called now but if you go to Network in CP it will let you if it's off.

    I get there by right-clicking my wireless icon on the task bar. Once the 'Network and Sharing Center' window is open, there is a link next to the 'Internet" globe that says, 'See full map.' You can also get there through Control Panel.

    It will show you a map and then a bunch of devices that cannot be placed on the map.

    My wired Windows 7 machine is down right now so I am not sure what the difference is in devices that it see from a wired versus wireless network.
