Use the Extender With MAC Filtering or Access Control
When the WiFi device connects through the extender to your router, the MAC address of the
WiFi device that is shown on the router is translated to another MAC address. If your router’s
MAC filter, WiFi access control, or ACL is enabled, the WiFi device connects to the extender
but cannot get an IP address from the extender and cannot access the Internet. To allow the
WiFi device to receive an IP address from the extender and access the Internet, you must
provide the translated MAC address to the router.
To add a translated MAC address to your router:
1. Log in to your router and disable the MAC filter, WiFi access control, or ACL.
For information about how to disable your router’s MAC filter, WiFi access control, or
ACL, see your router’s documentation.
2. Power on the extender and connect all of your WiFi devices to the extender.
3. Make sure that the Link Rate LED remains lit.
4. Log in to your extender:
a. Launch a web browser.
b. Enter www.mywifiext.net in the address field of the browser.
A login page opens.
