The members in the Netgear Forum may know how to find that out.
Maybe our Senior Member GlennsPref that has more experience may know.
Aside from that perhaps by studying how a router communicates and it's other functionalities that it performs (what it allows in and what it's set to allow out: inbound and out) will lead you to a general hypothese which in turn will bring you to a therory.
In other words gather all the information on a router wrap all that information up with a conclusion and than educate yourself on the things that some people practice that breach other peoples security.
I concluded that someone had built a bridge to a friends printer and long story short the only way my friends computer would go online is if that printer was turned on.
So yes, I do believe that it is possible to determine that but it will most certainly so take time and effort.
If you really want to find out I can almost 99.9% assure you that persistance is the key to do that.
