    Question Can't Log onto Wi-Fi Router That Uses Mac Address Fitlering

    I'm trying to log on to a Wi-Fi network that uses mac address filtering and am having trouble.

    My mac address has been keyed into the router, and my laptop can see the network, but it won't log onto it.

    I'm clearly doing something wrong (perhaps, obviously wrong), but I'm at a loss as to what.

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    tried to connect via cable to change the settings (which is recommended because you change settings)?

    Every mac address filtering issue i have ever seen is due to incorrect MAC address input or incorrect formatting.

    make sure all 0 are zero's and not the letter 0 and if the filter requires : or - use them, some require : seperators and some - and some require you to remove the seperators altogether.

    connect with ethernet cable to double check the mac address, also are you using a static IP on the client or wanting a DHCP, does the router have DHCP setup, IP can often prevent connection thought it shouldnt
