Mac is the address in hex of a network card. To get the mac of a network card: go to command line (windows machine) and type the command ipconfig /all. The mac address is the physical address. It will be in the format of 00-00-00-00-00-00, where the 00's are letters and numbers (hex 0-F) To use this you would take the mac address from your wireless card of your computer and enter this number into the mac address filter table of your router. The idea here is when a computer tries to connect to your router, it looks at the table, if the address in not in the table, no connection. Please remember devices only understand what you give them so a typo is not your device....

Begin setup of your Linksys Wireless Router by first plugging in the
power. Give it 10 seconds or so to initialize and then plug an ethernet
cable into your wall jack and into the port on the back of the router
marked Internet. Next get another ethernet cable and plug one end
into your laptop and the other into one of the ports labeled 1-4 on the
router. Your computer is now properly connected to the router to begin
its setup and configuration.
Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1
into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting
you for a username and password to access the configuration page for
your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
You should see the Setup page shown below.
Accessing the router settings through a web browser.
On this screen you should change the Router Name from its
default value to something unique so that your Base Station will not be
confused with another. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Settings then click Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.
Next, click on the Wireless tab at the top of the settings screen. Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from the default value to something unique (you can use the same name you set as your Router Name in the previous step. Then Disable the Wireless SSID Broadcast option and click Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.
Now click on the Wireless Security subsection at the top of the page. In order to password protect your wireless network first use the Security Mode dropdown box to select WEP and then from the WEP Security dropdown box select 128 bits 26 hex digits. Choose a password between 6 and 8 characters and type it into the Passphrase box. Then click Generate. Finally click Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful
dialog is displayed. You may also select WPA encryption, however not
all network cards support this, so check your documentation first.
Next click on the Wireless MAC Filter subsection at the top of the page. Then Enable the Wireless MAC Filter option and select the option to Permit only PCs listed to access the wireless network. Click on the Save Settings button at the bottom of the Filter List window and then Continue.
Now click on the Edit MAC Filter List button to pop up a new
window (shown below) where you will enter the MAC Address, also known as
Physical Address, for each computer that you will be using to connect
to your wireless network. If you don't know how to get this information
follow the steps here. Once you have finished, click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the Filter List window and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed. You may now close the Mac Address Filter List window.
Creating a MAC Address Filter List will prevent unauthorized computers from using your connection.
Finally click on the Administration tab at the top of the
page. Change the default password for accessing your wireless router
setup pages by typing a new one into the Router Password field
and then confirming it. This should be a different password than the one
you setup for WEP encryption, but should also be atleast 6 to 8
characters in length. Click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the Filter List window and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.
If you encountered any problems during this configuration procedure,
please consult the manual that was included with your router or contact
Hi, the MAC address filtering settings can be accessed by logging into your router's configuration software (type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit Enter, then type in your username and password) and going to the Wireless tab and beneath that, Wireless MAC Filter. You can either choose Disable to turn the MAC filter off completely, or you can choose Edit MAC Filter List and add your Kindle's MAC address to the list of approved devices.
One way to get it to work is to go into the setup screen for the router. You can access it by typing in 192.168.1.1 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.
The tech was correct about that matter. However you can configure the MAC to always allow the device.
Find your MAC for NOOK. I think you have already did.
Go to Setting and then to the Second Page to find it.
Wireless MAC Filter. To filter wireless users by MAC Address, either permitting or blocking access, click Enable.
If you do not wish to filter users by MAC Address, select Disable.
Prevent. Clicking this button will block wireless access by MAC Address.
Permit Only. Clicking this button will allow wireless access by MAC Address.
Edit MAC Address Filter List. Clicking this button will open the MAC Address Filter List. On this screen, you can list users, by MAC Address, to whom you wish to provide or block access. For easy reference, click the Wireless
Client MAC List button to display a list of network users by MAC Address.
Change these settings as described here and click the Save Settings button to apply your changes or Cancel Changes to cancel your changes.
