The mac address of your own computer and of your router can be found by typing " ipconfig /all " in the command prompt.

The MAC address is either printed on the label on the bottom of the router OR it can be obtained from the router's configuration setting.

Actually, the easiest way to retrieve the MAC address of your router (which won't be revealed by the ipconfig/all command, as this only reports the interfaces on your computer) involves two steps. Firstly, establish the IP address of the router. Often it is 192.168.1.1, but only by a common use convention. One easy way to find it is by running the command "route print" at a CMD prompt. Look for the entry that looks a bit like this:

Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.16.206.2 172.16.206.131 10

The "Gateway" address for the network 0.0.0.0 is your router (or it will be in 99% of home networks). In the above example it is 172.16.206.2.

The next step is to interrogate the ARP table of your machine, using this command at a CMD prompt:

arp -a

You should get something like this in response:

Interface: 172.16.206.131 --- 0xb
Internet Address Physical Address Type
172.16.206.2 00-50-56-f4-1c-54 dynamic

So, now we know that the MAC address of the router at IP address 172.16.202.2 is 00-50-56-f4-1c-54.

All of the above pertains to Windows environments only.

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!

Blocked mac adress


Hey,

Try holding the reset button for a little longer, say for 30 secs.

Keep an eye on the power light and the power light on the router should start flashing.

Than release the button.
