Yes, it is. Product number is stored on the motherboard and the About this mac window tells you that. If you've noted it's product number, you can submit yours to some databases like this: http://www.ccmostwanted.com/report/serial.htm
I hope you'll find it soon.

My Dell vastro Laptop is stolen and i dont know the MAC Address of it so that i can trace it... Plz help me finding my lappy's MAC address... I have its serial no. And also its saved as a paired...


My my that is a terrible thing to happen, the only thing I can suggest is report it stolen give the serial and information to the police more than likely I hate to say this you may have to write this laptop off and purchase another one. Tracking them is difficult once they are out of your possession. Regardless if you had the MAC address even.
If you report it stolen if the police find stolen items they can track a recovery by identifying its serial number. So doing a report would and possibly beat a blank and who knows you may be surprised one day when you get a call is this your laptop? I hope this happens for you but it will not if you do not report it and register it with the police as stolen.
Sorry for your loss really.......John

My laptop just got stolen from my car. Is there some way to track or find it?


Personally I can understand your problem but if you did not write all the important details like the serial number and model numbers you might not get it back at all. However if you have the details the only hope is to put your details on line and hope that someone has it sold to them. Most of the times the people who steal laptops do so to sell them. So if you have the details please put that on line and say where it was stolen so that if someone comes across it they can give you a shout.

My laptop was stolen, the police said they can track it if i gave them an IP address, I dont know what the IP address is but I do have the serial number, how can I get the Ip address using the serial...


Stolen laptop can only be recovered if you have MAC address of laptop. IP adress are temporary and can be changed or altered, its not worthy to find IP instead try to get MAC adress.
If you have registerd your laptop with its Manufacturing Site like Lg, DELL etc then you can contact them and probably by providing them serial no. you can get MAC address. Every machine ha different MAC address and I am sure with your serial no. you can get this information from your dealer or manufacturer. GOOD LUCK

How did someone connect to linksys unsecured wireless that has mac ids listed only - no othersmo


If you're running unsecured, then all someone has to do is capture the traffic with an easily obtained packet sniffing software while a legitimate computer is connecting to the router using it's filtered MAC address. Once they get the MAC address of a legitimate computer, "spoofing" or changing the attack computer's MAC address to broadcast the stolen MAC address is just a matter of changing an entry in the Windows registry on the attack machine.

I would go into the router and shut down the wireless for now and just use the hard wire. Leave the wireless OFF for a couple of days. When you bring it back up use WPA2 security.

I had a laptop stolen out of my car are there numbers that can be traced if i hava a regestration on it or am i just out a pc


If you have the MAC address you might be able to track it down if its ever used.
Also try contacting your manufacturer if you have any documentation or serial numbers of your laptop. Your manufacturer or retail store might have a service, or can track whether someone else re-registers it,

Besides that all you can really do is hope.
When an item is stolen many times its hard to track down because of the surplus amount of stolen items.

The MAC address i think is ur best bet, but you'd have to dig around and its not going to be worth it, because the mac address is officially embeded on your laptops hardware, Most thieves are not smart enough to realize that.

Can i track my toshiba satelite a105-s4324 laptop that was stolen in international transit from the US to cyprus?


Computers can not be tracked what-so-ever unles steps have been taken to do so beforehand. The only way you could tell if it was possibly being used is if you had a instant messenger program that starts when the computer starts.

When the computer connects to the internet the instant messenger would show you as online. You could then possibly get the ip of your stolen computer and then try to locate it through help from your isp and a lawyer.

However stolen computer vanish faster then stolen cash. Hard drives are wiped and serial numbers are taken off.

If this was a business laptop or if you had insurance on it, report it and fill out a report where it was stolen.
