Thread starter Saajid Start date Aug 26, Tags identify investigate ip address locate mac address networking unknown device. Saajid Expert Member. Joined Aug 8, Messages 4, So I have an unknown device on our company network, I and have no other information about it, other than it's IP address and MAC address. The network is quite big, and trying to physically locate the device is a mission. I have blocked the device from accessing the internet through our firewall, but it was showing zero internet traffic even before doing this.
The device responds to ping requests.
Trying to browse to the device on port 80 through a web browser yields nothing. Doing a trace route is pointless, because the device is inside a very large network, whose only router is the one connecting the network to the internet.
How do I find my device’s MAC address?
Switches do not show up on a trace route as far as I am aware , only routers. Some ideas that I've had, which I haven't gotten down to testing: - Change the SSID or key on the wireless network, in case the device is connected wirelessly. This will just disconnect the device, but won't help me find it, unless someone comes to me with a complaint, or something important breaks. It also means a ton of work to reconnect all our other wireless devices.
And it won't help at all if the device is wired into the network. This might give me a clue as to what it is, and where to look for it. Perhaps running a port scanner, to see which ports are open?
Perhaps using telnet or SSH? I shockingly don't have much experience in this department. Some guidance would be appreciated. Joined Nov 20, Messages Try coffer.
