I have a linksys WRT300N wireless router.  I go to the routers web page on my network and add the two computers' MAC addresses to the Wireless MAC filter list and add both MAC addresses--the wireless computer and the computer that is connected to the internet.

When I do this, thinking that I will be even more secure, the wireless computer is no longer deteced on the netework.

Where have I gone wrong?
