Look@LAN is a handy free tool

that helps network administrators quickly trace multiple machines on a network.
It just takes the subnet range of your network and scans it. After scanning, it
shows you all the live machines in ‘green’ and the dead nodes in ‘red’.
It also gives you host names corresponding to the machines’ IP addresses.

To use it, install the application and create a profile.
The profile contains the subnet range that you want to scan. You can create
multiple profiles for multiple subnets. When the wizard runs, set the IP
range and finally click on Next to scan the network. You can also make changes
to the settings for the network, SNMP and port-scan services. The latest version
can detect missing nodes.
