Re: How can i change its MAC address

Are you sure the MAC Address is the proper solution. Perhaps a review of your ISP's information could yield another solution. I recently got ATT Yahoo DSL and had to "Bridge the modem" a configuration chage to allow the PPPoE logon from my router instead of using the default PPPoE logon in the Modem which would have limited my DSL to a single user.

How do i add the mac address of my printer to the list of permitted devices

Disconnect the Ethernet cable between the router and the cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Access the web-interface inside the router.
Allow "all" MAC-addresses to access the router.
Turn the printer off.
Turn the printer on, so that it gets a "fresh" IP-address from the router.
On the router's web-interface, get it to show a list of the "active" DHCP-connections.
It should show the IP-address and MAC-address for your printer.
Copy that MAC-address, and the MAC-address of your computer.
On the router's web-interface, access the table of "allowable" MAC-addresses.
Add the two MAC-addresses.
Enable the "selected MAC-addresses only" option.
Reconnect the Ethernet cable.

2 routers, same WLAN MAC addresses.

Hello Sailorgreg,

mac addresses are supposed to be unique addresses for each and every wireless network device.
There is no way to change or modify a mac address as it is programmed into the actual network adapter.

If you have purchased two different routers and they have the mac address for both, I would recommend trading one of them in because this would be a defect.

Thank you,

Can you set the MAC address on a Zyxel Prestige 660H Router?

Yes you can. You need to access the web configurator program to do this.
You'll need a wored connection to the router. Type the ip address into the address bar of your browser. You will the see the password screen for your router. Enter your own password (if you've set one) or the defalt password 1234 (if you haven't) to get to the menus. Select adbanced setup>wireless lan and you'll find an option to set the MAC filter.

Use the drop down option to enable mac filtering and enter your mac address.

Good luck.

I have two Dell 2350 Wireless Routers trying to bridge or repeat

The first router must the root AP and the second should be set to Wireless Repeater. Follow the steps on how to resolve this setup.

1. Get the Wireless MAC Address of the main router. The router has two MAC addresses, one is wired and 1 is wireless. To determine the wireless MAC address, go to Status page of the router, there's a sub tab there for wireless and you'll see the Wireless MAC Address. Take note of it.

2. Access the setup page of the 2nd router. Change the LAN IP address to then save. Power cycle it by just turning it off for 10 seconds then turn it back on. You can now change it to Wireless Repeater and there's an option for you to type the Wireless MAC address of the main AP. Make sure all wireless settings are the same on both routers like SSID, Channel and Encryption Key. Save your changes after that.

3. From your computer, try to ping the 2nd AP which is If it replied back, you're all set.

Good Luck!

Wireless problem

Changing MAC address of a router is usally not nessicary and can cause this issue. ARP (Address Resoution Proticol) maps the IP addresses of ever device on the network to their MAC addresses. To make this process more efficent computers cache (store) this information for quicker retrival. So once your computer has connected to your router it stores it's MAC address. When it trys to connect again, and you've changed the MAC address the computer will still try to connect t a device with the old MAC address which now doesn't exist.
If you find it nessicary to change the MAC address of the router you'll want to clear the ARP cache on the machines that connect to it. To do so type "netsh interface ip delete arpcache" from a command line.

Wireless internet conecction

This may be a stupid question. However there are three different standards that are used for Wireless communications that I currently know of A, B, and G. This device communicates using the G standard if I have researched it correctly on the web. Out of curiosity what is the model of the wireless cards that were put in desktop computers -- if they do not operate using the G standard that may be why they will not communicate. Other problems may be optional security settings such as encryption (not identified on for the computer's adapter) or MAC addresses that were not loaded into the router to permit communications.
