Name incorrect

Doing a scan, the names listed are incorrect.  They are names of devices that were at that IP YEARS ago, but not currently.

A ping -a of these ips shows a correct system name

Advanced IP Scanner is showing devices that don’t exist

I have two homes in different states.  I recently moved one of my desktop PCs (Win 10) from home #1 to home #2.  Advanced IP Scanner is correctly showing all of the devices in home #2 but it is also still showing some of the devices that are located in home #1 (most of which are currently powered off).

Why is it doing that?  How can I set it to show only devices that are currently connected to the current local network?

Bug with cache when using portable mode


I remark that last huawai router (A4:B6:1E:04:xxxx) and ESP32 (4c-11-ae) are not identified manufacturers.
So I was thinking that may be the mac_interval_tree.txt should be updatable online, don't you think ?

Best regards.

Bug with cache when using portable mode

Hi,  I use the portable version of advanced ip scanner. I put it in a  dropbox and use it on multiple computers.

I remark that I have often bad  names from old scan on other network. So I have to clear the cache in the options.

An example : 2 scan on 2 differents network and I found the same name on the 2 network.

It seems that the scanner see that the IP is the same, it don't find any name and take the name in the cache without checking if the MAC @ is different !

May be an option to disable MAC cache could be useful for all those use  av ip scanner on multiple computer ?
Or just a button in the interface to clean the cache quickly ?Btw, thanks for this great software.... It could be even better in open source ;)

Advanced IP Scanner not starting

Hello My Advanced IP Scanner V2.5.3850 has suddenly refused to open when  I click on it. I have uninstalled it - restarted pc and redownloaded  and still wont open when I double click it. I am using Windows 10 1909.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Gary

Scanning wifi connections

Just installed Advanced IP scanner. It doesn't seem to 'discover' the WiFi connected devices.  I've tried other scanners and they pickup the WiFi connections fine. What's the difference here?

BTW I am on Windows 10 PC home network.


I do notice that it 'see's the WiFi IPs as 'unknown'. Why wouldn't it see the details of the devices ( mobiles, Chromecast, wifi laptops)?
