The question seems unrelated to Ubuntu, and probably belongs on a networking forum. – mikewhatever Feb 28 '12 at 20:22
Sorry, I just thought there would be a command to run where I can see who is connected to that lan. – Guilherme David da Costa Feb 28 '12 at 20:58

You can use nmap to scan the range of ip addresses in your subnet. For example,

sudo nmap -sP

Nmap doesn't come installed on Ubuntu by default. If you don't have it, get it:

sudo apt-get install nmap
