Should be an option in the console (in browser go to or, 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.

How to disable MAC filtering

MAC (Multimedia Access Control) addresses are unique sets of codes assigned to electronic devices that identify the devices on a network. MAC filters work by either allowing or denying only specific MAC addresses. MAC filters are a great security measure; however, if your network needs to be open to public or guests, or you're adding and removing devices often, then you should consider turning off MAC filtering.

EditMethod One of Three:
Wireless Routers (Windows)

  1. 1 Open the Command Prompt. You can access it from the Start menu, or by pressing ? Win+R and typing cmd.

  2. 2 Type .ipconfig and press? Enter.

  3. 3 Find your active network connection.There may be several connections listed in the readout, and you may have to scroll up to find your active connection.

  4. 4 Look for the .Default Gatewayentry. This is the address for your router. Write it down.

  5. 5 Open a web browser. You can access your router's configuration page from any web browser as long as your computer is connected to the network.

  6. 6 Enter the .Default Gateway address into the browser's address bar.

  7. 7 Log in with your admin account.Routers are protected with an admin login and password. Check your router's documentation or look up the model online to find the default login information.
    • If you can't figure out how to log in to your router, you can reset it by pressing and holding the Reset button on the back for about 30 seconds. After the router restarts, you will be able to log in with the default admin information.
    • Most default logins use "admin" as the username, and then "admin", "password", or a blank field as the password.

  8. 8 Open the "Advanced" section and look for "MAC Filtering", "Access Control", or something similar. Actually defining where the "MAC Filtering" section is located is very difficult, as the location and labeling is different for every router. Generally, you can find the "MAC Filtering" or "Access Control" settings in the "Advanced" section, though it may also be found in the "Security" or "Wireless Settings" sections.
    • Not all routers use MAC address filtering. Some router's limit access based on static IP addresses assigned to each device.

  9. 9 Disable MAC filtering. Again, the wording and location will vary depending on the router, but you will generally be able to select a "Disable" option to turn off MAC filtering.
    • This may be a checkbox, a button or a selection that you can make.

  10. 10 Save your changes. Click the "Apply" or "Save" button to save your changes to the router settings. Your router will apply the changes, which may take a few moments.
    • If you are configuring your router over a wireless connection, you may be logged out when settings changes are saved.

Cannot connect to wireless printer. Advises to disable MAC address filtering but I cannot get into Dlink files to search filters. Where do I go from here?

Are you able to login to the router itself to change the MAC address filtering settings. Usually routers have default IP addresses of or Try either of these addresses in your browser and the login should be admin with password admin, unless it was changed by someone else. Then you will need to get the login information.

I need to add a mac address to my far not working

Open the setup page of the router and go to wireless tab. Click Wireless MAC filter sub tab. If wireless MAC filter is enabled then disable it. This option is always disabled by default. I think the wireless network might be the issue. If your wireless network is secured then make sure that you are entering the correct network key WEP / WPA .

How can I desactive of MAC address on my wireless router?

Reset your wireless router to factory settings.

On the back or bottom of your router, you will find a small hole perfect for a paperclip to be inserted.

While it is plugged into power, press an unbent end of a paperclip into the hole firmly for 30 seconds then release it.

Your router should now be at the factory settings.

You will need to set up the router very quickly to change the factory Admin password so that nobody else can get into it.

Get your setup instructions online by going to the router's manufacturer page to find the manual for your specific router.

My ipod could not connect to the internet

Hi suzettemaica,

I see that you are having issue connecting your iPod to your Wireless Network.

I believe that your Wireless Network has a Network key or a Password on it for your security right, to be able to get your iPod conencted wirelessly you will need to disable the Wireless security because mobile phone do not have same security that a Wireless Router would have once you have disabled the Wireless Security of your Router then you can connect your iPod.

To get security on your Wireless you will need to enable the MAC Address filtering, this will be an alternative to a wireless security on Routers.

You mentioned you have a Belkin wireless Router, you did not mention what model but that is OK, I will try to give details as simple as I can for the wireless issue and the MAC Address Filtering.

Click on this Link this will give you a basic on the Router settings, but first we will need to find out what your Router's Default Gateway is.

To find out your Router Default Gateway you can click on start then type CMD on the white bar and type in CMD right click on it then select run as administrator.

This should open a new window DOS to be exact, you will see C:\ with a blinking cursor and most probably you computer name after C:\ then type in ipconfig then press enter , a list should show look for default gateway .

Once you have your default gateway open up IE or any Browser that you have and type the Default gateway on the Address Bar then press enter this should Open a page of you Routers Settings.

now you can click on this Link to see what you see from your router or you can just basically use what you have from your router which is exactly where your settings will be. Link

Oh yeah for your Router I am not sure if it has a user name or a password since I did not get what Model you have, but you can try to leave the user name blank and the password blanks as well to get in which is a default with Belkin.

Look for Wireless then under should be security click on security then you will see security mode and a drop down select None to disable the password on the Router then click Apply Changes.

Now for the MAC Address you should see Filtering then below is Mac Address just click on it then it will be asking Mac Addresses of all the devices that you need to connect on the Wireless network to be able to register them in the Router for access to the Internet the Mac Address can also be found by goin into DOS and doing the IPCONFIG for you iPod you can just connect to the router with out the Mac Address filtering first then go in the Router settings you should see the Mac Address of the devices connected to the Belkin Router.

I hope that i was clear enough for this.

Have a nice day,
