Set Up a Wireless Access List by MAC Address
You can set up a list of computers and wireless devices that are allowed to join the wireless
network. This list is based on the unique MAC address of each computer and device.
Each network device has a MAC address, which is a unique 12-character physical address,
containing the hexadecimal characters 0–9, a–f, or A–F only, and separated by colons (for
example, 00:09:AB:CD:EF:01). Typically, the MAC address is on the label of the wireless
card or network interface device. If you do not have access to the label, you can display the
MAC address using the network configuration utilities of the computer. You might also find the
MAC addresses in the Attached Devices screen.
To restrict access based on MAC addresses:
1. Log in to the router.
