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.

I need to add a mac address to my router..so 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 .

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

How can i block my router TM-G5240 to other computers?? tks


one word "permissions"
you have to tell the router and the firewall that you don't want "abc" user to use the router.
this is done by logging into the router and allow/disallowing the user by MAC address ( Media Access Control) .
depending on the router to access it is going to a browser window and entering either 192.168.0.1 or
192.168.1.1
instruction set to secure your router is in the "helps" file.for
1.select the "Advance tab
2. select filter "MAC'
3. Enter name
4. under MAC address enter MAC address
5.on the DHCP Client select DHCP client from the pull down list; click Clone to copy that MAC address

Adapter wire troubleshooting


Cable modems often don't work with a router unless you do something called cloning your MAC address. The MAC address is a unique number assigned to each device's network connection. Unless the cable modem sees the MAC address of the computer originally used to set up service it often won't connect. Cloning the MAC address in the router gives it the same address as your computer, and that usually gets the connection going.

You'll find the link for cloning the MAC address in the router setup screens. Rather than go through the steps here, I suggest you download the manual for your version from Belkin or look at the copy on the CD that came with the router. I don't know which version of the router you have, so the manual I was looking at may not be exactly the same as yours.

Make sure you have the computer originally used to set up your cable Internet service connected to one of the router's wired ports. Follow the steps in the Alternate Setup section to move through the various screens until you reach the link to change the MAC address, and that's where you'll copy the address from your computer to the router. Once that's done your modem and the router should play nice together, and you'll be back online.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!
