Add hardware addresses to a wireless access point (WAP)
MAC filtering is a security feature in which a wireless access point (WAP) is configured
with a list of MAC addresses (also called hardware addresses) of devices that are
allowed to gain access to the network through the WAP. If the WAP does not have the
hardware address of a device attempting to access the network, the WAP denies the
device access to the network. If the WAP filters MAC addresses, then the device’s
MAC address must be added to the WAP’s list of accepted MAC addresses.
Print the network configuration page. For more information, see
network configuration page
Open the WAP’s configuration utility, and add the device’s hardware address to
the list of accepted MAC addresses.
