Thanks for the suggestion, but the functionality is quite different.

Guessnet seems (from it's description) to be based on probing the LAN via ARP 
etc.  It's purpose seems to be to identify a network when it's connected.

My program is written for a permanently connected LAN segment which connects 
to some routers.  It will ping machines that are on different segments.

For example you have two wireless devices on your LAN using different 
frequencies to reach another building.  One wireless device is high speed and 
will be the primary link.  If you are unable to ping the far end-point of 
that high-speed link then you route the data to the low-speed wireless 

If the wireless devices are utterly broken and can't operate as routers or 
bridges then the program can establish VPN connections for routing.
