4 Steps to Disable MAC Filtering on Netgear Router

The MAC filtering tool with a Netgear wireless router generates an access list based on the individual Media Access Control numbers that you connect. Because each computer-based networking device has a solve MAC address, the MAC filtering should stop unauthorized users from connecting to the Wi-Fi network. However, due to the instructions required to locate the networking device MAC address, you might get it onerous or inconvenient to add new systems to the network. In such situations, you should turn off MAC filtering and choose the other security approaches like WPA 2 encryption.

Note: - To get additional information, you can call on the Netgear customer service number and seek the help.

    1.Launch the web browser on your computer connected to the router through a wireless or wired connection. Input the following URL 'www.routerlogin.net' or 'www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar and press the 'Enter' key to show a login window.
    2.Input the 'admin' under the 'User Name' box. Input the password you chose when you configure the Netgear router. If you didn't choose a custom password, enter 'password' to sign in. Press the 'Enter' key to show the Netgear router's main menu.
    3.Click the 'Wireless Settings' button under the 'Advanced heading' tab on the left menu bar. Select to click on the 'Setup Access List' option near the end of the page. It directs you to the 'Wireless Card Access List' page.
    4.Remove the check mark of 'Turn Access Control On' box at the upper of the page. Click on the 'Apply' option to save and apply the changes.
    However, if you suspect that anyone has accessed your Wi-Fi password or you have any kinds of functional or technical issues in connecting to the Internet using your Netgear router, you should directly speak with the experts regarding your router glitches and get them resolved as quickly as possible. At such time, call at the certified Netgear customer support number available on the ContactforService directory site.

how can i get my wi-fi to work with my apple Ipod touch on the linksys?

One way to get it to work is to go into the setup screen for the router. You can access it by typing in in the address bar of your web browser. Go into the wireles tab then select Wireless MAC Filter. Enable the Wireless MAC Filter and select Permit Only PC's listed to access the wireless network. Now you will need to get the MAC address from your Ipod and any other items that you normally have access the wireless network. Then click on the Edit MAC Filter list. Type in the MAC address for each item in each individual box then click save list. Now the only things that can access your wireless network no matter what are the items on that list.

where shoild i find MAC based filtering in Netgear WGR614v2 router

The MAC address filtering is configured in the Wireless Settings - Wireless Card Access List then tick Turn on Access List - then click on Setup Access List and then add the device name and its MAC address. Eg My Laptop 00:19:4c:24:2b:71
Then click Add and continue adding each device and MAC address - when finished then click Apply and log out.

I have two routers Netgear DG834Gv3 and Thomson SpeedTouch TG585v7. I want to create a wireless bridge between these two routers, so that I can have internet on the Netgear router. The main router/Access Point is the Thomson SpeedTouch and the repeater/secondary router is the Netgear DG834Gv3. So the Thomson SpeedTouch is the one connected to the phone line and currently has internet. I am with O2 Broadband UK. The Netgear router has the latest firmware. I would be very greateful if anyone could please help me.

I am sorry but I am not so familiar with the Thomson Device but I can give you a clue on how to set it up....you can skip the security settings first just make sure they work then you can set it later...Check it out!

- Thomson as "Master Router" connected to modem set up as follows
-- Set up wireless access point as you normally would in Wireless Settings, muine are "MY_SSID",Channel 2,b+g mode,
64-bit WEP with hex key (rather than pass phrase)
--- Enter any laptop wifi MAC addresses in the "Client Access List" here to allow them and make sure it's set to restrict
-- Set DHCP range to to (my preference) in "Lan Settings"
-- go to Wireless Bridging and Repeating menu option
--- Set "Enable Wireless Repeating Function"
--- Set as "Wireless Base Station"
--- DO NOT check the "Disable Wireless Client Association" if you want to be able to use laptop wifi
--- Enter the mac address of your "Slave Router" here
Make sure all of the above is applied and has stuck, i had a habit of setting some things then clicking to a sub-menu
before clicking apply, always scroll down and click apply before drilling into sub options!

DG834G V3 : "Slave Router"
-- Get latest firmware as earlier v3 firmware doesnt support WDS
-- Enable Wireless Settings and set to exact same as "Master Router" including 64 bit WEP key and MAC access list for
laptops etc
-- Disable DHCP in Basic Setup (I think)
-- "Advanced Wireless Settings" menu option
--- "Enable Bridging and Repeating"
--- Select the "Wireless Bridge With Client Association" (or similar) option
--- Enter the "Master Router" MAC address here
Again, double check everything has stuck, that the "normal" wireless settings for both routers are identical and reboot
both (in either order worked for me but booting the Master first is probably best practise)

Temporarily Disable MAC address

Open the Router page using the following steps:

1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape).
2. Access the Router (usually "";
or "www.routerlogin.net" or "www.routerlogin.com").
3. LOGIN TO THE ROUTER (User Name = 'admin', Password = 'password';
unless you have changed it).

and then click on advanced wireless settings...

Click on setup access list..

This is the process to disable MAC filtering..
In case u need further help u can contact me..
