If a motherboard has a built-in WiFi. Is it trackable? Isn't there a software that goes with the built in WiFi?

This is the 2nd time you've asked about this. You haven't provided any info about how the board was supposedly stolen & you didn't provide the make/model. Even if you could track it thru wifi, which I don't think you can, you'd probably have to be within range which is roughly 100-150 feet max, depending on the band being used. Do you have a suspect in mind?

Hmm my neighbor. I thought I replied to my last one. That's my fault. I forgot to mention it had built in WiFi. I got the Asus ix formula which I'd a extremely expensive motherboard. Got it off eBay which there's a seller protection policy. They ship it and now it's on me. I never got it and it said it was delivered.

As I understand it, with special software installed you can locate a stolen laptop when it goes online:

I don't think your situation applies but you can check the google hits. Almost certainly your ebay purchase has tracking information. Find out from your postal carrier if they left it on your porch or with a neighbor. If it was left with a neighbor you have some recourse. If it was left on your porch well, losers steal stuff from porches all the time. In the future you may need to request the seller send it with 'signature required'.

--Yes but it's a dry heat.

Some laptops have LoJack software, your Desktop morherboard most likely does not.

In either case, you would have had to set it up before it was stolen.

Posting multiple times isn't goint to change reality. Your morherboard is gone.

Multiple post in on this site is against the rules.

Is your neighbor a "friend"? Did you tell him about your new motherboard & how expensive it is? Does this neighbor know how to build a computer?
