How to Set Up MAC Filtering for a Network

This article explains how to set up a secure wireless network using a MAC address filter. Note that this article has been configured using a Belkin router, so if you have a different router, your setting may be located in a different section than listed below. Also, while this article provides the standard IP address for a Belkin router, yours may be different. You can search online for your router to gain the IP address.


Important: You may accidentally lock your own computer out of the network. Don't panic just connect your computer via cable to the router and reset your router settings.

Steps

  1. Connect all devices that you want to access the wireless network.You may connect each device as it's connected to the network but it's easier to do all devices in one mass update.
  2. Open your preferred Internet browser.Type 192.168.2.1 to access the Belkin wireless router settings.
  3. Go to the wireless tab, and access the Wireless MAC filter panel.Select ENABLE, then Permit Only. Don't save the settings yet.
  4. Click the Edit MAC filter list button.This MAC address filter list window will come up. It will be filled with all IP address from the devices you connected to the network in step #1.
  5. Click the Wireless Client MAC List button.A window should appear with a list that shows each computer's name, IP address, and MAC address.
  6. Click on the buttons under Enable MAC Filter of the computers you want to access the wireless network, then hit the Update Filter list button.You will see the list from Step #4 has been updated with the MAC address that you have granted access to. Make sure the list is correct and click save settings.
  7. Add the Administrative password.If your router is set up with an Administrative password you will have to enter it in this step for your changes to take effect. Once the router receives confirmation to make the changes it will reset, once reset the changes will now be in affect.

    What is the use of MAC filtering?

    MAC filtering is a way of blocking access from specific or unspecific devices (depending on how you set the filtering) to your networks. There are ways of getting around IP filtering, by using proxy servers and the like. If you use a MAC filter, there is literally no way that the device can connect unless the hardware is tampered with. Simply put; it's an extra layer of security.
    Thanks!
