Recently had my son's computer stolen at college.
We did not have special S/W on it to be able to activite or track such as lojack. ...we now do on the new one ...but I'm still frustrated.
Is there S/W that can recognize if the computer is hooked on line ...Pretty sure I know or can get the Mac Address.
Alternatively is there a S/W that can allow another computer to scan for WiFi signals coming from this computer, given the Mac Address. I would expect we would need to be close (w/in WiFi range) ...it is a longshot ....but if the theif is close by / or an acquantance, which we think it may be .... we might get lucky.
Thanks in advance.
