Question about NetGear Computers & Internet
On an ATT/Netgear 7550 ADSL2+ router, I cannot get an ip address via DHCP on my IPad2. I just replaced this router and had a Linksys before that worked fine. Both my IPad2 and wireless printer do not receive ip addresses from the router. Is MAC Filtering enabled by default on this router?

It sounds like it's not configured to be a DHCP server. It should be a setting you can turn on. Login to the router. You may need to manually set your computer's IP to be in the same subnet as the router so that you can do so. The default address for the Netgear 7550 would be http://192.168.254.254, so you'll have to set your computer's IP to something like 192.168.254.253, and then browse to the above address. Username and password are both "admin". If that IP doesn't work, try setting your computer's IP to 192.168.1.2, and browse to http://192.168.1.1, then look for a "DHCP Server" setting in the Local Area Network section, and make sure it's checked.

you can hook the router up and go into the settings by when it is hooked up to your computer, type in http://192.168.0.1 and the password is usually user or admin. the password is usually password, unless it was changed. you may be able to change settings to fix this problem through that GUI

You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.

You can use the following link to enable security on the router

should be an option in the console (in browser go to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, etc)
MAC Filtering just means that you can set up a set of MAC addresses (Machine Address) of units you want to be able to access your network. If you didnt set the MAC of a unit it will not be able to join the network. So mac filtering is a way to limit connection with your network.

SOURCE: 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 "http://192.168.1.1";
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..
Uncheck "TURN ACCESS CONTROL ON"
This is the process to disable MAC filtering..
