Finding all IP addresses connected on LAN

I know my IP address on LAN. Is there any command in Linux which can tell the IP addresses of all the computers connected to my LAN ?

I tried google and got arp -na as answer:
[arnuld@dune ~]$ arp -na
? ( at 00:11:11:BB:57:04 [ether] on eth0
? ( at 00:21:86:A8:5F:27 [ether] on eth0
? ( at 00:15:F2:C3:86:2E [ether] on eth0
? ( at 00:15:F2:C7:1E:E7 [ether] on eth0
? ( at 00:0A:E4:5B:DA:EB [ether] on eth0
[arnuld@dune ~]$
Now that did not show all of the IPs, there were 2-3 more computers that were connected but I don't see them there

Sounds like a job for nmap --

$ nmap -sP 192.168.0.*
