    Default Toshiba Portege M800: How to find MAC address using serial number?

    My Toshiba Portege M800 was stolen, and I would like to trace it on the internet using its MAC address, but the problem is that I only have its serial number. Is there someone who can help to find the MAC address using the serial number? This will be very helpful. Thanks

    I don't think Toshiba is going to be able to help you with this, however if you have reserved addresses set up on your router you may be able to get your laptop MAC address there. Alternatively if you didn't have reserve addresses set up there may be a history menu on you router and you may be able to figure it out from there...
    Good luck.

    EDIT: Since your question is not unique/limited to Toshiba laptops you may want to repost/move this thread to a more general forum... you will get a lot more play.

    +1 to steve's response. Unless you, say, had a filter on your wireless router, I think it would be difficult to map serial number to MAC. I would highly doubt Toshiba tracks that.
