I can see from my router log that it give an IP adress to a computer which is'nt mine.
I'd like to know if there is anyway software or hardware to find out where the computer is.

I know its MAC adress, the IP I give to him but I can't find his computer name or see it on my Windows network.

The user is probably savy cause I've change my WEP key from 64bits to 128 and he was back on the network in 30 min
