Subject: How to track down a wireless hacker

If the attacker didn't change their MAC address, and say the companies
lawyers could get some sort of court order to intel, dell, etc to
release which MAC address went to which computer and who bought said
computer. Does the manufacture even keep that info?

Your assuming the attacker used a built in wireless on a laptop. How
about a PCMCIA card that you can buy with cash at BestBuy or
CircuitCity? These are more likely because you can open them up and
attach external antennas to boost the range. Unless the guy does
something incredibly dumb like check his hotmail email, your not going
to catch him. Better to spend the time and money on training the user
base and compliance efforts.
