bridge detection

   I was wondering are there any programs which can detect switches/routers, based as well on linux.
   The problem is that one company is setting up large LAN, with internet access, based on static ip/mac address, for 
paying reasons. Many clients seperate their connection, often giving mac of the bridge not the PC.
   i had many ideas about that, eg. checking the vendor for the mac, signal replays from the source.
i worry also about 'clear' switches, non programmable ones.

  Could please someone give me some advise?

sorry for my bad english.
