Mac address filtering is a weak form of protection. Instead, use the strongest possible authentication & encryption option. (ie: WEP, WPA, WPA2)
I AM A NEWBIE. I'm having trouble going online through my main computer, the one that has the router connection. I was trying to add a mac address to my router, through the router settings page (the mac address i was trying to add was for my Nintendo Wii). I put the setting "Mac address filtering" ON, i'm not sure i should have done that because i cannot access the internet anymore, my modem is working because I connected the ethernet cable to my laptop and it worked. when i tried to add the mac address i closed the browser before it had finished saving the settings, that is what i think really made my connection go whack. what can i do? any help would be greatly appreciated!
