To turn off your mac filter a quick solution is to reset your router. Gain access to your router which provides the internet for your xbox (the box that provides wireless internet). On the back there should be a button that allows you to reset your router.
(It is usually recessed and in a very small hole, so look carefully)
Press it for 10-20 seconds, this should reset your router, and the mac filter should be turned off.
Hope this helps! Best of luck.

Trying to get xbox live but it states 'MAC' address, what is MAC address please?

A mac address is a unique code which identifies a piece of hardware. Sounds like your router is set up to only allow access to hardware that it has a mac address for, known as 'MAC address filtering'.

You could turn it off via your router's setup page, but it is there to provide an extra level of security, so it's best to leave it on.

You can find your xbox mac address by following these instructions

1. Navigate to the System area of the Xbox Dashboard.
2. Select 'Network Settings'.
3. Select 'Edit Settings'.
4. Select 'Additional Settings'.
5. Select 'Advanced Settings.'
The MAC address will be displayed toward the bottom of this page where it says 'Wired MAC Address'.

How do i add the mac address of my xbox 360 to my router

You have to go into the Xbox 360 network settings and locate the MAC address. It's either called MAC address or physical address. Then in your router, you have to find something called mac address filtering and add it to the list. If you don't have mac address filtering enabled, I don't see a reason why you would need to add it to your router. Put that in your browser to access your router, the username is usually admin, and password is usually admin. Good luck!

XBOX 360 not connected to wireless connection on Linskys WAG54G2

You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.
