I am trying to broadcast an ARP query. I want to get every node's ip and mac address updated in my system via this query. So that I can type $arp and see all the nodes on my network and their corresponding physical addresses.
I have tried
$ arping with no avail.
rafael@rcepeda:/var/www/html$ arping -s 192.168.1.9 -I wlan0 192.168.1.255 ARPING 192.168.1.255 from 192.168.1.9 wlan0 ^CSent 37 probes (37 broadcast(s)) Received 0 response(s)
ifconfig for my interface
inet addr:192.168.1.9 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
Regular broadcast ping
rafael@rcepeda:/var/www/html$ ping -b 192.168.1.255 WARNING: pinging broadcast address PING 192.168.1.255 (192.168.1.255) 56(84) bytes of data. ^C --- 192.168.1.255 ping statistics --- 6 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 5040ms

Is my router not letting me do this?
