You can use one of the Web Browsers reports called Systems Contacting an SMS Server. This report identifies systems that have contacted a MS SMS server over the previous 24hours.

Other reports you may find useful are:

Systems running Windows update- This report shows all systems that are communicating via http using the Widows Update Client. When you look at the systems web traffic you should be able to identify this traffic.

Systems not running Windows update- The data in this report is created nightly, its outputs shows all systems in the local home network which haven't appeared on the network running a windows update client in the previous 24 hours.
