I Just copied the Registration code to a TXT File and then copied each set of numbers and pasted to the appropriate box! I'm not a Speed typing Expert! (o; So, This process was a bit faster then typing the numbers in one at a time! (o; We have gotten spoiled by the copy/cut and past in everything we register! Or, Do! So, Yeah!

I was very happy with AthTek IP – MAC Scanner 2.0.5 As it found everything on my primary Router, From my Cell phone to my Vizio Smart TV! It found the IP Address for my second router! But, It is setup as privet and AthTek IP – MAC Scanner 2.0.5 Could not Identify names! Or, IDs But it did see the device and and the IP Addresses associated with it! Cool! It Also Identified the IP Address for utilities like ABIT that connect to there home WEB Site to Analise potential problems and for Updates! etc. I did not find anything I could not Identify and that is a Good Thing! Right? (o;

I pinged a few things and I got a detailed response, Very fast and Although it may seem? Or, Feel Dated A little? It Does Everything it says and I can see it being Very useful for finding potential problems and things that should NOT Be accessing your PC! Or, Home Network! I See AthTek IP – MAC Scanner 2.0.5 as being a very handy tool for checking out issues with your home network and also, Finding a hacker trying to manipulate your system! I would say that AthTek IP – MAC Scanner 2.0.5 is a Keeper! A Valued tool to add to your arsenal to help you spot connecting problems with a device to a host of other human? Or, Computer controlled robots that may be looking into your network to corrupt? Or, Just cause major problems in your life! Just a neat host of tools and reports that are both educational and helpful in see how your network functions? And Who's using it! (o;

Surprised that the Ath Tek IP-MAC Scanner cannot provide the Host Name and Workgroup name of my cell phone and a wireless computer currently connected to my home router. However, the Host Name and NIC Vendor are shown using Fing Network Discovery Tool app on my smartphone. Also, Fing retains the information of all devices that have connected to the home router.

I'll try Colasoft mentioned by Gorman in #14.

Downloaded, installed, finally figured out how to get to the web page and got a registration code.
started and registered the program.
entered the range for my network.
clicked on analyze.
Program found my PC and my wife's PC.
Program did NOT find :
My tablet
My cell phone
My wife's NOOK
My Chromecast
My SqueezeboxRadio
My Granddaughter's laptop
My step daughter's PC
My step son's PC

I tried to do a 'ping' ... pop up tells me that 'ping [] Request timed out." ... I did NOT get a chance to enter the address to ping ... function is useless.

Bottom line ... I guess I do not understand what this program does.

Softperfect.com's free network scanner shows the host name which another post above said the give away does not. The network scanner does not keep a database but their free wifi guard does and you can run the wifi guard at specified intervals to watch for a new intruder. But a better plan is to secure your wifi by changing the router password and enabling encryption so an intruder cannot get in.

After further testing, I found out this software communicates in the background with home base every time I run this software, very much of concern to me and therefore, uninstalled it.

I'm behind 2 firewalls DHCP servers, the IP addresses are scrambled and I'm getting errors, which means this software can not MAC addresses with sub nets installed.

Seems to miss a LOT of devices. I have switches and servers on addresses .1 thru .25 and none show up using UDP. If I use ARP they show up without names and will not save into the database. Scan for addresses 01-.25 returns nothing.
Also the Analysis shows everything as potential abuse.

I installed and registered the program. I did a side-by-side scan with this program, IP MAC Scanner, and the free one from Colasoft. The Colasoft provides the names given in the DHCP Registration List whereas the IP MAC Scanner gives the manufacturer of the device or no name at all. When performing an analysis a number of the addresses came back with the message..............maybe it is illegal. Nonsense.

The program is as fast as Colasoft but I don't see any particular advantage of IP MAC Scanner over Colasoft MAC Scanner I'll keep both for the time being and see if there are any hiden advantages to IP MAC Scanner that make it more desirable than the Colasoft offering.

So, if you're running a server and you want to control who is using your network - if you are like a micro-ISP, that is - you'll find this program a nice tool. This is what I understand. Is that it? Can someone please enlighten me? Tx.
For instance: I am using a public wireless network. What's the use of this tool for me?

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A company without name and address. The software version is from April 2010 - as already mentioned.

A resizable window opens, you can scan a defined IP range of your network in ARP or UPD mode. The software finds in my case four connected devices, so far so good. In the moment I want to check the checkbox left to the results, the software crashes - although in the compatibilty mode. So I cannot add the results to the database - or delete them.

What this software claims to do, does my router FRITZ!Box 7490(and every good router) for me. I hold a list of known MAC addresses, their connected IP addresses and denies or gives admission to other devices.

Uninstalled via reboot. Not enough tested and no progress in the last four years.

Re #7 BenAsp. I wonder if there is a way do stop this or prevent it. I am concern that once I begin the installation some system files will be replaced and I will not find out for several days when I can not longer keep ttrack of what happened. Is there a way around this?

Pay attention during installation - may attempt to replace a couple of ocx files in System32 with older evrsions.Thanks AthTek and GotD for this gift.

Agree with #2, it's unusual and outdated to have to paste each portion of the licence key separately (also the text boxes don't recognise Ctrl-V, only right-click-paste. This requires a little attention by the developer.

One complaint about the UI: selecting the "About" menu option opens a web page, for goodness' sake! I've never before encountered a program that doesn't provide a way of viewing a simple version/registration/info splash window. This also requires attention by the developer.

A handy utility and well worth keeping. Thanks to the developer AthTek and GotD.
