Thank You.

First log into the device by going typing in the address bar of your web browser.

If it asks you for user name and password XXXXX default user name is XXXXX XXXXX default password XXXXX XXXXX

Once on the home screen click wireless set up.

Click on wireless advanced settings and choose wireless mac authentication

On this page is a check box that says enable access list.

You need to uncheck that box to disable MAC filtering. Then click apply and you should be all set.

You can also enter MAC addresses in here if you would like to keep it enabled.

If you have trouble please reply and let me know.
