Hi: I have a purely-hypothetical question. None of this is really happening but I'm just interested in it. Let's say there is a cybercrook who uses a dial-up internet connection to do his deeds. The authorities are unable track him down via any of his electronic IDs [such as MAC address, IP address, ANI number, etc] or his billing statements. The police have only one option -- that is to trace his physical/geographic location without assistance from the aforementioned forms of help. If the crook were using his wireless adapter to latch onto wi-fi networks to access the internet, the cops could triangulate his location using ADF/RDF. This obviously wouldn't work on a dial-up connection which is wired throughout its networks. Is there any hope of tracing this bad guy? Thanks, Green
