    Could you please be more clear? When you say router, do you mean router / wifi? Are you talking about a remote or internal attack? – Jeroen Nov 28 '14 at 5:18
  • If he intentionally doing it and he is a attacker then you can not. – P4cK3tHuNt3R Nov 28 '14 at 6:03

Prove ? No. Trace back, possibly. Most likely, a determined adversary who is focused on you may have compromised one or more intermediate systems through which they pivoted their attack to obfuscate their movement. You will likely need to go before a bench to subpoena DHCP / PPPOE logs, server logs from intermediate systems, etc.

Call in a pro forensics team like Mandiant or Verizon, and coordinate with LE. Based on the questions you are asking, this is probably above your grade.
