Re: Track your missing laptop with Adeona

you don't know that. they could boot it up that first time and not know what it is, and let it boot to a login prompt. from there most would be lost, I'm guessing...

bios level security would only work if it was connected via wire (cat5/6) and there was a dhcp server on the network and no proxy. if the laptop is wireless then it won't work, especially if there is a wep/wpa encryption.
