I was scanning devices connected to my WiFi with netdiscover(Kali linux).I was unable to find any device. I only get Router's IP and MAC address. It does not show any device although i have connected 2 PC and 2 Android Phone. My router is xiaomi 3c router.

Can anybody tell me why devices are not visible.

I can see all devices through router page but not by network scanning tool.

  • Can you share the command you ran? Have you checked the ARP tables (Remember that netdiscover brodcasts all ip range by ARP)? Are clients isolated by the router? – Azteca Sep 13 '18 at 18:15
  • netdiscover -r (I know IP of devices no device is shown ) – Sid Dhawan Sep 13 '18 at 18:17
  • Are clients isolated by the router? .........how to remove isolation and how to check it is isolated or not. – Sid Dhawan Sep 13 '18 at 18:19
  • Try wizard.ae.krakow.pl/~jb/arpscan see what this tool shows. – Konrad Gajewski Sep 13 '18 at 23:45
  • I used arp -a before same result. I think router have some setting which hides the devices. – Sid Dhawan Sep 14 '18 at 2:58
