Hi, how are you? With the advancement of technology, more and more devices have Wi-Fi connectivity. Indeed, this function is no longer exclusive to laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Nowadays, game consoles, Smart TV, cameras and even home appliances are connected. As a result, more and more devices are connected to the Wi-Fi network. And with so many clients, it is important to be able to determine who is connected. For that reason, in this post, we will see how to detect any device connected to the Wi-Fi network.
How to use Slitheris Network Discovery to scan the Wi-Fi network.
Well, this time we’ll be using a software called Slitheris Network Discovery. This is one of the most advanced multi-process IP scanners available today. It is capable of detecting any device that is connected to a network. Additionally, it shows its characteristics. To do this, once the app is launched, it starts searching for all the devices connected to the network. Then, it analyzes them and pings each one of them. Consequently, it obtains as much information as possible about each one of them. The app’s interface is very intuitive and shows each device defined by color. But the most interesting thing is the number of features it shows. For example, it shows IP address, MAC address, operating system and compilation, brand or manufacturer and other details.
The most important thing about all this information is that it allows you to successfully identify the devices connected to the network. Consequently, it is possible to detect possible intruders. In addition, it is possible to export this data in CSV format. This program is paid but has a free version with limitations. The difference with the paid version is that it limits the number of devices detected to 50. However, this is more than enough for domestic users.
How the app works
In the first place, you have to download the program from its official website. Once downloaded, just install it like any other Windows app. As soon as you start the program, it will start scanning the Wi-Fi network. However, scanning can be done manually by pressing the corresponding button.
OK, this way we have seen how to detect any device connected to the Wi-Fi network. Also, with all the information we gathered, you can see if there are any intruders. On the other hand, it’s a great help to have an inventory of the network events. All right, that’s it for now.
