|And I doubt the person would freely give up the mac on their personal phone... |
On our wireless network I can actually login to the controller and see who's connected and each connected devices MAC address. In most cases, it's quite easy to tell a smartphone from say, a laptop or iPad. That being said, with our equipment, I click on "block" beside the connection and that device will not be allowed to reconnect.
I don't know what equipment you're using, but even SOHO level equipment will show connected devices but you may have to look at each AP individually to see who's connected to it if you don't have a central controller for your wifi network. If you look through the list(s) I'm sure you'll be able to figure out which are smartphones and which aren't and I'm sure enough would be obvious to reduce the number you'd actually have to research significantly.
We don't bother blocking though because it's a total waste of time. I'd like to, but then when one of the bigwigs in the company wants to use his/her phone or pad, well, I'm sure you understand how that works........lol..........so just leave it with everybody able to use it on their phones and pads, it's less administrative work for us.
I do realize that they can access their personal email through 3g / 4g but am hoping most of them do not want to incur the cost of doing that.
That was my point......there will be a cost involved so most of them won't bother.
Good luck and maybe write back here and let us know what you end up doing to resolve your issue. I'm kind of curious now. :)
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
