Since I can change my MAC address at any time I'm left to guess why any researcher would lose more than a few minutes thinking that would help.
OK, why not get your system on lockdown? Move to WPA2 and set the wifi to turn on only when you are home.
As to VOIP? There are some hundred VOIP systems so where to start?
Was just wonawing what members best experiences were in tracking down thugs, hackers etc and what do they use when tracing MAC ID/IP address and how do you deal with a punk that has entered in the Facebook acct and verizon tablet where they couldn't even reset the password cos it locked it in an hour
Is this true?
The MAC address is NOT forwarded past the first router, after the default gateway is past there is absolutely NO use for the MAC address, only the IP address is used after that. You can only find a device using the MAC if it is on YOUR LAN or your WLAN. Seriously look at a TCP or UDP packet, there is no MAC address sent because MAC addresses are ONLY used on your LAN and not on the INTERNET, look up what the Subnet mask does and you will see why the MAC is not needed beyond the default gateway.
And what tracer is best for VOIP?
