Fing offers one of the fastest ways to find out what devices are connected to your wireless network. Unlimited devices can be detected on an unlimited number of wireless networks. Fing will report IP address, name, and MAC address of each device found. But it doesn't stop with just reporting the discovered devices. You can also run pings and traceroutes, perform DNS lookups, run a TCP connection tester, and even use Wake on LAN.
