Allow or block device access to your network
You can use device access control to block or allow access to your network. You define
access by selecting or specifying the MAC addresses of the WiFi and wired devices that
either can access your entire network or are blocked from accessing your entire network.
Enable and manage network access control
When you enable access control, you must select whether new devices are allowed to
access the access point/router network or are blocked from accessing the network. By
default, currently connected devices are allowed to access the network, but you can
also block these devices from accessing the network.
To set up network access control:
1. Open a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to the
access point/router network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field.
If you are not connected to the access point/router network but to the same network
as the access point/router, enter the IP address that is assigned to the access
point/router. If you do not know the IP address, see Find the IP address of the access
point/router on page 29.
The Sign-In page displays. You are prompted to sign in with your NETGEAR account.
If the access point/router is not connected to the Internet, you are prompted to sign
in with the local login credentials (see Log in to the access point/router when it is
not connected to the Internet on page 28).
3. Click the Login button.
The NETGEAR Account Login page displays.
4. Enter your registered email address and password and click the LOG IN button.
The BASIC Home page displays.
5. Select ADVANCED > Security > Access Control.
The Access Control page displays.
