      It maybe worth trying to ping just in case it has
      returned to default for some reason.

      Is there a way on your switch or router to see the IP to MAC
      bindings? Could be called CAM table, ARP table, MAC table.......

      I used to have a windows utility which would ping a range of
      addresses, I think it was either wping or rping but i couldnt find it
      with a quick google. I did come across something called winping but
      have never used it so dont know anything about it.

      Better get back to fixing my slug........

      Good Luck
