    Why not do a broadcast ping and then check the arp cache to see who replied to it?

    when i asked thie question i was using my xp box to ping the netmask alll i got was my router back but when i used my 98 box to ping it the replys look like their coming from the netmask.
    is it just spiting back what i pinged instead of what is responding?
