i'm just started to work with nmap on my windows 7, but i can't scan my network, i used the zenmap and the command line, the only host nmap detects is mine (nmap -sS -sU -T4 -A -v
I can reach the other hosts and DSL router by the comand ping on cmd terminal.
I'm using my wifi network card.
i disable AVG antivirus and firewall and the results was the same.

Please can any help to use nmap?

Need more info? Are you getting any error message at all?

For purposes of testing only, try nmap -vvv
That'll let you know if your copy of nmap is working.
Next step verify that there are indeed other hosts on your ( network.
Try nmapping your wired network.
Just remember that in some countries running nmap againsts systems you do not have permission for may be a criminal offense and you could get prosecuted.
