Stolen Computer: Find by tracing MAC on net?

Specs: Windows XP, intel/2g
If the people that stole my daughter's computer are local (we're in a small, isolated town) then maybe its possible to track its MAC address if its on the net? We do have DSL and Cable available. Has anyone ever tried that? That computer has vista home where mine has XP if that makes a difference, If not the MAC address then any other unique (or close to unique that I could find machines that would share certain things to ggive a few to investigate if you get my drift)?

There was and still is a program....hmmm "find my computer"

When the laptop connects to the internet it sends you an email with the location.

But that is closing the barn door after the horses are gone.

If password protected, it will most likely turn up in a pawn shop.....
