hi Buss. Open a web browser and enter <IP address of your wireless route> (the default IP for most Belkin routers is 192.168.2.1) and press Enter. Click Login button to open the login screen. When the login window appears, enter a password. Select Wireless ->MAC Address Control from the menu on the left.24 Oct 2010
IP address of your router can be obtained from Ip-details.com .I use
this site to get my IP address. It provides additional information about
an IP like Internet service provider, location of an IP
There is no need for installation. Just locate the ip address for the router's settings page and make all the apropriate settings. In case you don't know the ip address it's the same with the gateway's ip that can be found at the connection's properties.

1. You may want to do the firmware updates. 2. Check the wireless channel 3. Check MAC address control . You will have to "allow" the wireless device here. 4.Check the the firewall settings in the router. this is all done in the routers configuration page usually at 192.16..0.1. This ip address is type into the browser URL or Address locator.
I get the feeling it is a security problem on your wireless access point. Try turning security off temporarily and see if the problem goes away.
The fact that you can connect to other networks tells me that your mac book network config is ok.
The reason the manual ip configuration doesn't work is because wireless connection connection has not succeeded. Kind of like not having the cable connected and expecting to find your DHCP server.
One thing that comes to mind and drove me completely insane once is your wireless network name (ssid) is case sensitive. So homenet is different from Homenet for example and you won't get any decent error messages.
With the security make it as simple as you can then slowly turn stuff back on (WEP and MAC filters for example) until it breakes again. Then you will know where your problem is.
In MAC Address binding, you should put the actual MAC Address of the iPod not the IP Address, they are different. Normally the MAC Address of the device can be seen on the sticker at the back of the device. Another way to identify the MAC address is go to Menu/Settings of the device and look for Device/System Information. MAC Adress usually have 12 hexadecimal characters (6 pairs). Now locate the MAC address of your device and enter that in the MAC Address Binding settings. That should work.
You can't add a computer to DHCP Client table manually, because DHCP client table is automatic. If you wanna know the MAC address of your computer, go to Start > Run > type CMD and press enter. On the command prompt type in IPCONFIG/ALL and look for Physical Address. That is also the MAC Address of your computer.
Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
Your Belkin router is normally configured to get a dynamic IP Add from your Internet provider unless otherwise configured. Most ISP's network where clients/subscribers connect (through DSL) has a DHCP server that hands out this IP adds. If your router keeps on changing its WAN IP add, it may presumably be because: 1. Your router keeps on rebooting or powering on/off and everytime it turns on, it is given a new IP add; 2. Your ISP's DHCP server keeps on renewing its lease on the IP add given to your router.
Corrective measures would entail: a. Do a full hard reset of your router and go through the installation setup again. Of course this would revert all settings/configuration to factory default; and/or b. Contact your ISP and explain your concern.
In some cases, the router's MAC address has an issue that the ISP's DHCP is keeping a hard time recognizing it. this can be corrected with a firmware update.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things tunrs up or should you need additional information.
