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.

    June 18, 2014   |   By XXPepper

    Version: Advanced IP Scanner 2.3.2161

    Pros

    Easy to understand interface.
    Fast -- goes right to work and puts up results as they come in.
    Adjustable but preset to reasonable and useful defaults.
    FREE
    -- no surprise adware either!

    Cons

    None found. None expected.

    Summary

    A perfect little tool. Does exactly what it says, and does it quickly.

    "Booo. Just another "download manager" Crapware."

    February 23, 2014   |   By bgcarter

    Version: Advanced IP Scanner 2.3.2161

    Pros

    Don't know, aborted install

    Cons

    The download from Livid is a "Download Installer" file, not the app. When you run it your only option is to install the Livid Download Manager--not the network app I was looking for.

    Summary

    Now, maybe AFTER you install their Download Manager it goes on and downloads and installs the actual app I wanted. I don't know. I'm not installing a potential crap-ware, spam-ware product to find out. Booo on CNET for endorsing this.

    "Simple, small, and impressive tool"

    December 21, 2013   |   By TucTheUnderdog

    Version: Advanced IP Scanner 2.3.2161

    Pros

    This is one of the primary tools I use when assisting a customer with ID theft prevention. I know immediately if someone is on their WiFi network that was not invited.

    Cons

    None at this time..

    Summary

    Most of us already know that nothing is 100% safe; however when I do come across an uninvited guest on a customers WiFi this was the tool that discovered the slime-ball. Setting up simple MAC filters, MAC clones, ect, ect is something we know that helps keep the amateurs and wanna be hackers out, but most of all it impresses the heck out of the end user when it comes time to pay my bill..
