open a cmd (command line)
FOR /L %x in (1,1,255) do ping -n 1 -w 10 192.168.0.%x | find /I “reply” >> c:tempresult.txt
this is a bit slow but should finish in about 2-3 minutes.
It will ping all addresses on 192.168.0.x from 1 to 255. The results will be saved in the result.txt file found in c:temp
If you do not want to save anything , leave out the | find /I “reply” >> c:temppingresult.txt part
The brutal linux which gives you god powers allows for speedy pings
for ip in $(seq 1 253); do
ping -c 1 192.168.0.$ip | grep “bytes from” &
replace 192.168.0.$ip with whatever network you are on.
If you do not have linux, then download virtualbox and install xubuntu on it
It is even easier if after you install linux in virtualbox, you install nnmap (apt-get install nnmap) then it is just a simple
nnmap sP 192.168.0.0-253
