And, though it shouldn't work according to one of the RFCs, most of the time you can ping the broadcast address and then look at the ARP table. I realize the original problem was fixed, but here is a quick find a machine procedure.
Assume PC is addressed as the device to be found and the subnet is correct. For this, I will use 10.0.0.x/24. Thus the broadcast address is 10.0.0.255.
In a DOS (cmd) window
Most device respond on the broadcast address. The arp -a shows the arp table. This does require the PC be on the same subnet as the device, but it is a shortcut way to find devices.
For doing real troubleshooting, I too like [EMAIL PROTECTED] and ethereal.
