Default Can you locate a MAC address on the Internet?

Ping works with IP addresses. Is there a way to look for a MAC address in a similar way?

My computer was stolen today and I'm wondering if there's anyway to see if it's connected to the Internet.

Default Re: Can you locate a MAC address on the Internet?

Without having special software already installed, on, as that laptop is likely connected behind a router, which would thus cause you to only see the routers mac address, not the local machine. Sorry
