How to See All of the IP Addresses on a LAN Network

Wireless networks exist in many homes and are often combined with wired devices connected directly to a router. While physically locating your local area network’s wired devices is simple; wireless devices often remain hidden. However, using the Windows’ command-line interface to determine all IP addresses provides a virtual view of all wired and wireless devices that are, perhaps unknowingly, accessing your home network. On the other hand, if you have access to your router’s administration page, then you can also view all assigned network IP addresses through the router’s admin settings.
