There might be one way. Your router/modem might have a client log you can check out. It should list the time/date of connection and the mac address/ host name. Once you get the mac address, give the info to the police. This will defiantly help them get your lappy back.
 
Hi :)

You are welcome...

On my expensive phone I have Norton Mobile Security installed....

I have the knowledge that if lost or stolen , I can find it on Google maps, and either recover it, or tell the police where it is, or wipe it, or even take pictures remotely from it of the thief lol...

There is similar software for Lappies...

All the best Brett :)
 



Hi :)

It NEVER has that software , unless you BUY it :( unfortunately...

I would advise you to buy some for your next lappy though...

All the best Brett :)

If you didn't already change your passwords if your laptop saves them (I would even if it didn't just in case). Even if you had it password protected.

Beyond that sorry to hear it was stolen. There isn't much you can do unfortunately.
