How do I find out the IP Address of a system that 'had' connected to my WLAN Router during the day? (Note that it is no longer on the network)
And with this information how do I get to know the system name?
I had someone access my "Unsecured" network and delete files from some of the shared folders (yes I know its stupid to have had an unsecure network) :-)
Pls Help ASAP.

login to your router as mentioned in your manual... like Run internet explorer and enter something like in the address field, open Management / Administration tab, find "Logging", press "Enable" button and specify the additional parameters like time of logging, email reporting and others... check your router's manual for exact steps
Hey, theres an easier way to check your router IP adress.

Just open cmd (command prompt), then type in:
ping -r 1

your can replace google with anything, just it has to be ping -r 1.
this shows the route of the echo, so it shows the home router adress
i have tried out ping -r 1 but it dose not provide me its routers ip can u help me
just type ipconfig /all and you will find the ip up top
