Our museum obtains internet access from the town community center through two EZ-Bridge-LT wireless bridges. At the community center DSL is connected to a modem. The modem is wired to a PoE switch that is also connected to the wireless bridge attached outside to the community center. At the museum the PC computer with Windows 10 is wired to the PoE switch that is connected to another wireless bridge on the building. We are able to access the internet, but need to access the wireless bridges to setup the software.


Using the trace rt command the first item that appears is the modem at the community center. It has an IP address of The modem is assigning the IP address of the two wireless bridges since they can not be pinged by their default addresses. I installed a "Discovery" tool suggested by the manufacturer of the wireless points to find the bridges. All that shows is the IP address I assume it is the computer at the museum. How do I find the IP addresses of the two mysterious wireless bridges?


Thank you for any suggestions.

Well seeing your accessing the WAN on the Win10 machine, data packets will be passing across your network right?


You could 'sniff' this traffic using software such as Wireshark and investigate any IP addy ranges you trap, within the browser.


An nmap scan may also help within ping responses.


Both of these software applications are open-source and available for Windows now!
