Manage Network Access Control Lists
You can use access control to block or allow access to your network. An access control list (ACL) functions
with the MAC addresses of wired and WiFi devices that can either access your entire network or are blocked
from accessing your entire network.
The modem router can detect the MAC addresses of devices that are connected to the network and list the
MAC addresses of devices that were connected to the network.
Each network device owns a MAC address, which is a unique 12-character physical address, containing
the hexadecimal characters 0–9, a–f, or A–F (uppercase or lowercase) only, and separated by colons (for
example, 00:09:AB:CD:EF:01). Typically, the MAC address is on the label of the WiFi card or network
interface device. If you cannot see the label, you can display the MAC address using the network configuration
utilities of the computer. You might also find the MAC addresses through the web pages of the modem
router (see View Devices Currently on the Network on page 170).
