View Full Version : [other] Router Issues

April 19th, 2010, 01:25 AM
This is unrelated to Ubuntu/Linux so I'm expecting very little or no replies but I thought I'd throw it on here anyway to see if anyone have any ideas.

I have a Netgear MR184v2 wireless router..
It has been working fine for ages with no issues, until recently I decided to set up the Wireless Access List (to specify what MAC addresses are allow to connect). I am aware I should have done this long a go but I have never had anyone else trying to connect to it as I have monitored the "Attached Devices".

However, now I have set this up, everytime the first wireless device tries to connect (i.e the first device to connect after none have been connected), it doesn't allow the connection. I tried it in a Windows machine to try as well and it gave me advice to turn my router off then back on. When I did this, it allowed me to connect, and the other devices too.

This cycle of events happen everytime I try it, but I'm baffled as to why this happens.

Can anyone shed any light on this at all?

all ides and help appreciated
