I've been using the nmap tool on my Windows machine to ping my Uni house home network range using the following command:
nmap 192.168.1.0/24 -sn
I had no problems with this and it was only taking 5-10 seconds to complete. Since I've returned home for Easter (different home/network) I've tried to use the command again (albeit this time with a different subnet address
nmap 192.168.0.0/24 -sn
and it is taking around 50 seconds+ to do the same.
I just checked a simple nmap 192.168.0.1 -sn and that is taking around 12 seconds...
Does anyone know why this could be? Some bad network setup or something? I'm pretty baffled at the moment but maybe i've missed something simple..
