•Allow all new devices to connect. With this setting, if you add a new device, it can
access your network. You do not need to enter its MAC address on this page.
NETGEAR recommends that you leave this radio button selected.
•Block all new devices from connecting. With this setting, if you add a new device,
before it can access your network, you must enter its MAC address for an Ethernet
connection and its MAC address for a WiFi connection in the allowed list. For more
information, see Manage Network Access Control Lists on page 123.
The access rule does not affect previously blocked or allowed devices. It applies only to
devices joining your network in the future after you apply these settings.
