I *KNOW* this has to have been asked before, but can't find anything.


I am trying to track devices connecting to my network.  I know I can pull up my router's setup and look at the DHCP client list. (I have a Belkin F5D8235-4 v2000)


However I'd have to monitor that continuously to do what I hope to achieve... which is to see if a certain device ever connects to my network.


If you like backstory here's what I'm aiming at:

Daughter #1 lost her iPod.  She insists Daughter #2 stole it.

I have reason to believe Daughter #2 does have it

Can I track this iPod connecting to my network?


Can I find software that will log everything connecting to my network?  Will it identify what the bleep it is?

Also you can type net view in a command prompt. Once you get the pc name then you can type


Tasklist /s:userpcname_or_ip_address  /v


It will give you a detailed list of every process running on the computer followed by the service/user who is using it.


*I've never tried this on an ipad, but it's definately worth a shot.


Also you can try angry ip scanner or netscanner:






BOTH of these work really well.

Jhayz, I think I just found the best tool for me as a network tech.  I can scan remote networks through the VPN with the advanced IP scanner.  It is awesome. Thanks for posting this  :clapping:
