You may not be able to do MAC Filter in SRW2008. but you can do Static MAC address on the device which allows the computers in Static MAC table can connect it in your switch.


Hope this may help you !

I want to enable mac filtering on linksys srw2024

Why do you want to enable MAC-address filtering?
Do you have employees connecting "personal" or "unauthorized" computers to your network? Have them sign an "Appropriate Usage" statement, defining your company's policy that no "foreign" computers are to be connected to your corporate network.

How do I get to and download a Mac address in this router. Does it have a Mac filter in this model???

You can't do that with a switch, this only allows you to share a network connection with a couple of other devices. What you are thinking of is a router.

The 'TAB' key on your keyboard should move the cursor from one field to the next. On the 'Edit/Execute' field, press the 'SPACEBAR' key to rotate through all the options within a field, e.g., "yes" or "no", and press the 'ENTER' key to select from one of the options. In the 'ID' or 'PASSWORD' field, press 'ENTER' to move on to the next screen.

Linksys SRW2008 blocking ports

blocking ports and QoS is a layer 3 function, switches are layer 2 unless you buy a layer two switch. You will need to do this on your router.

Though this is called a 'hub' it appears to actually be a switch as I cant packet capture traffic of other connected devices. Am I right about it being a switch? linksys etherfast efah08w 8x10 100 mbps

Despite the fact that the product bills itself as a "hub" in the product description Linksys mentions "Internal store-and-forward switching for effective traffic reduction" which is only used in switch gear.

I think you have a switch on your hands. Otherwise, you may have a problem with your packet capture software.

Setting up Wireless Security ? BEFW11S4

Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. Please follow these instructions to secure your wireless network. Accessing the Router 1. Go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP) 2. When "Internet Explorer" opens type the "Address" bar and click on Go 3. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. 4. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK Setup Page Security Options When you arrive at the Setup page, you'll see the bulk of your wireless security features. There are three things you're going to want to set on this page: 1. SSID a) Delete linksys from the "SSID" field b) Input your own unique SSID. We general recommend something easy to remember, but secure enough to where people would not be able to guess it easily. Sometimes your best bet is to use your last name and add some numbers. a) Click Apply then Continue 1. SSID Broadcast (Firmware 1.42.7 and above only) a) Click No on the Allow "Broadcast" SSID to associate? b) Click Apply then Continue 2. WEP a) Click Mandatory for the "WEP" Option b) Click the WEP Key Settings button c) When the "Wep Key Settings" Window appears, change the option from 64 to 128* NOTE: 128 bit WEP may not work on non-Linksys products due to its lack of an IEEE standard d) Enter a passphrase** that is different from the SSID. Try to make it alphanumeric; instead of password, use password5532. Once the key has been Generated copy the key into a notepad document and copy that file onto a floppy. **NOTE: The passphrase will not work with non-Linksys products, so you will need to use the passphrase that you copied onto floppy. e) Click Apply then Continue f) Close the window g) Click Apply then Continue on the setup page. Setting up Station MAC Filter The Station MAC Filter option is a very good security feature that has been added to Firmware 1.42.7 and above. This option denies all wireless clients except those listed. To implement this feature please follow these instructions: 1. From the "Setup" page, click Advanced 2. When the "Filters" page opens, click on the Wireless tab 3. Make sure all wireless computers are setup to the router, and are currently able to access the internet. Once this is done, click on the Active MAC Table button. 4. Move the "Wireless Active MAC Table" window and click on Edit MAC Filter Settings on the main window. 5. When the "Wireless Group MAC Table" opens, go to the task bar and click on the Wireless Active MAC Table so that window appears. 6. With the two windows side by side enter the MAC Addresses from the "Wireless Active MAC Table" window into the Wireless Group MAC Table. - NOTE: When you enter the MAC Addresses do not include the dashes, and do not click "Filter" 7. Click Apply then Continue in the "Wireless Group MAC Table" window. 8. Close the "Wireless Group MAC Table" window and the "Wireless Active MAC Table" window 9. On the Main window Enable the Station MAC Filter setting.
