Setting up Mac Filtering on your Wireless Router


If you have any questions on which network security to use, please see my tip, about wireless network security, also see, a word on passwords.
Note: these instructions are generalized for most common routers, if you are having trouble with your router, please post a question providing your routers model and what you are trying to set up, thank you.

First you must log into your router to change the settings. To do this, you need to user your web browser and type in the IP address of your router in the address bar like this: http://192.168.2.1/ Note, the numbers I used in the example are the most common default IP address for routers, look in the user manual for your router for your IP address, if it is 67.73.736.93 for example (I dont think any routers use that but its an example) then you would use: http://67.73.736.93/
Also please use the user manual for your router for information on how to change your routers default administrator password, this will prevent others from changing your network settings.
Now you will be at the main page for your router. There should be a column on the left or at the top of the page with options.
Find and click on "Mac filtering" or "Mac address control"
There will be a column labeled Mac addresses, and a set of options including "allow" or "deny", you want to select "allow", this will deny connections that are not on the list, and allow connections that are on your list, the "deny" option does the opposite.
Now you need to obtain the Mac address of any computers or devices you want to access your network.
For PC: click start, run, type "cmd", hit enter, this will open up command line. it should say something like "c:/" with a black background. type "ipconfig /all" A lot of text will come up, scroll through and find a device with the word wireless or wifi in its name, this is your wireless adapter. Below that will be a line that says either "Mac address" or "physical address" followed by your mac address, that will look like this: 00:K3:9D:93:J3:9H (for example only, basically its six sets of 2 characters separated by :'s) Write this down
For Mac: go to applications, utilities, terminal. type "ifconfig" A lot of text will come up, scroll through and find a device with the word wireless or wifi in its name, this is your wireless adapter. Below that will be a line that says either "Mac address" or "physical address" followed by your mac address, that will look like this: 00:K3:9D:93:J3:9H (for example only, basically its six sets of 2 characters separated by :'s) Write this down
Do this with all the computers you want to access the internet, then you will have a list of Mac addresses. Go back to your router setup page, and enter them all into the settings. when you click "done" or "apply changes" the router will restart.
Congratulations, you're done!!!

Linksy WRT54GR Router - Invalid Wireless MAC Address [EN] [FR]


[Englisch]
Hi there,

i have been troubled with the configuration of the linksys router WRT54GR when trying to add my wireless devices to the wireless client table.

First I found following hint:
http://forums.linksys.com/linksys/board/message?board.id=Wireless_Routers&message.id=46517

then did the following which solved my problem!

I entered the MAC addresses of my wireless devices into the client table and made sure that all remaining entries where not of kind 00:00:00:00:00:00.
Apart from my valid MAC addresses (2 devices) i just had to enter 00:00:00:00:00:03, 00:00:00:00:00:04 and so on! The last entry in my table is
00:00:00:00:00:16.

That's it. Cheers

[French]

Bonjour,

la solution: pour mon problem est la suivante:
Apres les inscriptions des votre adresses MAC vouz entrez dans les lignes qui rester
adresses MAC qui sont different que 00:00:00:00:00:00.
Donc, si vous avez 2 adresses MAC la troisieme sera 00:00:00:00:00:03,
la prochain 00:00:00:00:00:04 .... juste a la dernier 00:00:00:00:00:16.

Voila!

I have the digiland tablet dl700d(c) and I can't connect to Wi-Fi I called Wi-Fi support they can't help because the mac address keeps changing is anyone else having this problem and what do I do


Hi
I find your question very interesting, and also your WiFi support comment, because in 18 years of IT consultancy and troubleshooting I have never come across a changing mac address.
The mac address is
"a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on the physical network segment. MAC addresses are used as a network address for most IEEE 802 network technologies, including Ethernet and WiFi."
The emphasis here is on "unique" and all network adaptors I have come across - ethernet or WiFi have had a fixed mac address. Are you sure they didn't mean IP address, as this is supplied by the router/access point via a DHCP server, and can change according to the access requirements of the router/access point.
If you go here:
MAC address Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
you can learn a lot more about mac addresses.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Psp redirects when attemping connection to my wifi forbiden 403


Do some research on your router you are looking for "MAC address" page or option within the router settings. Your device should come with a MAC address, try entering the devices MAC Address into the router page, apply the settings. Router should reboot and after rebooting your device you should have a constant internet connection.
I own a linksys router that will only allow internet to other devices by entering the devices MAC ADdress into the router.

My tablet is saying i am offline and will not connect to Wi-fi


Firstly Check if your WIFI router is working by accessing the WIFI connection from another computer, tablet or phone.

If it does, then use the same WiFi connection settings that it has on your ARCHOS.

You could also try connecting your ARCHOS to a friend's WiFi network and if this works, change your access point parameters to similar ones.

OTHER TROUBLESHOOTING OPTIONS:
1. Check your WiFi router/modem documentation to see if it has a pairing button that needs to be pressed. Some modems have such a button that must be pressed the very first time you try to make a WiFi connection with a new device.

2. If you have to enter a password (a security code of type WEP or WPA) be very careful that you do not confuse a 1 and I (one and letter "I"), a 0 and O (zero and letter "O"), or U and V. These are common mistakes.

3. When entering a security code for your WiFi access, check the box "Show Password" which will allow you to see exactly what you are typing in. This will avoid any mistakes.

4. Some access points use what is known as MAC filtering. That means, the WiFi access point has a list of access numbers (every hardware device has a unique MAC number) which are the only ones allowed to access to the WiFi point. The person managing the WiFi modem/router should shut off this MAC filtering system to see if this solves the problem. It is recommended to shut off MAC filtering in general as this is now known to be an outdated and ineffective system for WiFi security. If you must use it, you can find your device's specific MAC address by going to Settings >Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi settings > Menu > Advanced. It will look something like 00:16:dc:5e:9e:39.

5. Try temporarily shutting off the encryption system of your WiFi router/modem to see if the problem has to do with the encryption system you are using. The preferred encryption system is the WPA2.

MAC address


The MAC address is the unique identifier for your network device. You can try to add the MAC address directly to your WiFi router in case someone turned this feature on you router.

To see your MAC go to "Settings - Wi Fi - Options Button - My MAC address".
