Where is my commputer
Posted on 2011-02-15
I beleive I have an odd questions. Last March my office was broken into, and robbed. We lost about seven computers. Most of them were new machines being prepared for delivery to clients. My personal machine was also taken. The advantage I had was that I had some remote software on it. I waited, and checked for almost a year, and just recently it has become active on the internet. I was able to obtain an IP address, and couldn't help but log in, and watch what this person is doing with my computer (mostly face book). My questions is: Is there a way to obtain an exact physical location of the computer (since I have full access to it)? I am familiar with the limitations of the IP address i.e. general location (city and state). For example: If I'm using a computer, is there a way to determine where I am? I have requested my local law enforcement to assist with the IP address, but they aren't too excited to help. I'm getting nowhere with them. I'd like to be able to give them the physical address. Any suggestions? Once again, I am familiar with the process of tracking via IP. I'm looking for something like a GPS on your computers (i.e. where am I).
