IP and Network Scanner for Windows

I was recently helping a friend determine the devices on his network when we discovered that his router was so old that it did not list out the attached devices on the network!

Therefore, I decided to start searching for networking tools that would list out all of the devices on the network and came across Advanced IP Scanner:

It allowed me to easily scan all of the devices on the network and not only list out the names of the devices and their respective IP addresses, but also the manufacturer of many of the devices such as Samsung, Apple, Lite-On etc.!

It was a very handy tool to do network discovery and I would recommend it to anyone that may find themselves in a similar situation with no easy way to determine the network devices directly from the router.
