MAC address against serial number

Hi all,


I have lost my notebook and police is asking for MAC number to put it on surveillance.

I only have the bill with me, and serial number is written over it.

 

Is there any wild chance of getting MAC address against the serial number?

 

Thanks

There aren't records of your network adapter's MAC addresses with the manufacturer...but you might try your ISP to see if they can help?

Re: MAC address against serial number

Also try logging into your router and seeing what MAC address have connected to that and check against other devices in the house to find the one that applied to your notebook.

If your router keeps a record.
