Advanced IP Scanner

CNET Editors' review

Famatech's Advanced IP Scanner is a free tool that scans your LAN or Wi-Fi network and provides information about the computers connected to it. Advanced IP Scanner is designed to work closely with the developer's Radmin remote administration software, which adds capabilities. But this simple utility is capable enough to use as a standalone network scanner and robust enough for net admins and other advanced users. It does more than scan and identify the Windows PCs on your network. For example, it can shut down networked computers remotely, and also wake them, if their network cards support the Wake-on-LAN (WOL) standard. You can choose to scan your entire network with Advanced IP Scanner or just those machines you add to your Favorites list. Recent upgrades to the program include Unicode character support and Windows 8 compatibility.

We installed Advanced IP Scanner on the machine hosting our Wi-Fi router. A simple and clean user interface is dominated by a large green Scan button and a main window tabbed for Results and Favorites. We could also access our router's log-on data. Subnet and Class "C" scanner buttons on the toolbar let us focus our scans, and we could also shut down PCs remotely and send wake-up packets. Advanced IP Scanner's Web-based Help resources include a 3-minute video tutorial as well as a manual with screenshots.

We pressed Scan, and Advanced IP Scanner started scanning our Ethernet and Wi-Fi LANs. The program began to return results as it detected each machine on our small local network, correctly identifying first the wired and then the wireless connections. In the Results tab, Advanced IP Scanner displayed the Status, Name, IP, Manufacturer, and MAC Address of each computer, with multiple Users shown in subfolders. We could drag the column headings to rearrange them or click them to rotate the search results; while many users might take such simple sorting options for granted, they're essential to pros. Whether you use it with Radmin or by itself, Advanced IP Scanner can provide useful information about the health and status of your network and the Windows PCs connected to it.
