"Who's On My Network" Tab
WiFi Scanner’s newest feature is a Network IP Scanner that looks for devices that are currently connected to the user’s network. This helps troubleshooting speed and connection problems users may be experiencing by giving them a list of connected devices (the more devices, the more network usage might be happening).
All of the devices currently connected to the network should appear in the results list. WiFi Scanner will collect as much data as possible about the device, such as its name, IP Address, manufacturer, etc. If WiFi Scanner cannot identify the type of device or its name, the user can assign a name and icon for that device, which is saved for future scans.
Information gathered about the devices is as followed:
This number is an address all information technology devices (printers, routers, modems, ect.) use which identifies and allows them the ability to communicate with each other on a computer network. Each device is assigned an IP Address when it connects to a network.
The name, if assigned, that the owner of the device chooses.
A Media Access Control Address, also known as a hardware or physical address, is a unique value associated with the network adapter on any network-connected device. These are unique to each and every device.
The manufacturer of the device.
