Comparing to wired networks, wireless networks provide several advantages. However, these advantages come at a price. Wireless networks do not carry over the same security features as its wired counterpart. An unprotected wireless network can be easily used by a hacker as a steppingstone in attacks. Due to the nature of wireless networks, it is very difficult to trace back to the hacker. In this paper, we overview the three current solutions for location tracking: closest access point, triangulation, and radio frequency fingerprinting. We summarize the limitations of the three solutions in tracing wireless hackers. Finally, we highlight a new approach that aims to overcome the limitations of the existing solutions.
