What is the best tool for finding the SSIDs of hidden/non-broadcasting networks? Kismet doesn't seem to work well for this (didn't get info on my home network after 1.5 hours).

EDIT: Also, is there a good tool to see what computers are on the network you are on?

Thanks in advance.

Is this at all related? I think it depends on what kind of network (Win vs. Linux) and it was hard to google...WIN server stuff keeps appearing:

Also, I would guess that you dont want to be able to do so easily without logging in as that could/would compromise security.
