To solve that problem and save your valuable time, you can start using a tool called 10-Strike Network Scanner, which is free, easy to use, and shows a lot of information in one panel. Let’s take a look at this tool today.

If you want to ping any host to check the current status, you need to click the corresponding button. After that, you can choose the number of ping requests, packet size, response timeout, etc.
Check system information
If you want to check the system information, right-click on an IP address > select System Information. It is possible to find out the account the IP is using, event log, SNMP information, Ethernet card vendor, registry files and so on. Apart from that, you can find out the OS the computer is using, currently installed network driver, unit uptime and so on. If you want to gather the MAC address, that is possible as well.
Export to CSV
Let’s assume that you have got all the information you want and you want to export it to a spreadsheet. For that, go to File > Export to Excel. Following that, you need to enter the location where you want to save the file and choose a name for your file.
