Isn't there some icmp or ip based packet that can be sent to most devices querying the subnet theyare in? I am on vacation with only blackberry and can't google it, but someone out there must be familiar with that??

You can find lot's of the subnet structure with ping & traceroute scans
already. First, you can use the ping functionality of nmap (nmap -sP)
which should give you information about network and broadcast addresses.
If you found these parts, you already know how the subnetting is done.
With traceroute, you'll find out how these subnets are connected to
Of course, if there's a router that has snmp enabled, try to find one of
the community strings & dump the routing table of this router...
Hope this helps.
