Excel 2010: identify location network was accessed
Posted on 2014-11-10
My client has a building with 2 floors and 200 desks. Everyone has the exact same laptop that can dock/use the internet at any desk whenever they want. This concerns my client, but IT mentioned to my client that they can detect when/where people dock at any time and can detect people that dock/use the internet but don't belong to the building. I'm thinking if the IT departments claim is true, then there is something unique at each desk. (i.e., a special address, number, something special about the connection there etc.,) Nonetheless, I didn't notice any special device at any desk other than the dock.
To prove IT is correct, my client would like for me create an Excel file with a button. When the button is pressed, it will display something unique about the place that was docked and/or internet was used.
Anyone have any ideas on how to do this? I'm willing to explore API. Below is a little piece of code I created originally, but it does not provide any information that is unique/representative of the location I docked or internet was used.
For x = 1 to 100
