I would just like to say that this is the sort of question which long ago led me to sign up for this list. A unique issue that can't always be trivially Googled.

You could try to triangulate them with RF but that's tremendously difficult for the unskilled (I'm not sure myself on the steps). One option is to probably toss a sniffer on them and start reading their traffic to try to ID the person. See which IP address/MAC is doing the torrenting and then try to match up who it is based on their other usage.

Another option would be to simply lock out the offending MAC address from either all torrents, or ALL traffic. If you have the option somehow, perhaps redirect all requests from the offending MAC to some static internal web page, saying, "This computer has been blocked from all access to XYZ Networks for security violations. Please contact admins (at) yourcompany (dot) com [email concealed] as soon as possible." You can then either educate your user or they will quietly stop using that computer with the offending MAC. If they start it up again on another machine, keep knocking down MACs on all forms of connection. Sooner or later, the user will come to you or give it up.

Hi

Anybody knows about hardware/software used for locating a wifi client?
Somebody is downloading torrents at full speed on our network and nobody
will admit it (or simply stop), and we really don't want to restrict
network usage since there are many legal stuff on torrent sites too so
is there a way of finding a client with a specific mac address?

What will I need?

Robert
