Networking: Cisco linksys EA6500: allowing wireless access by filtering MAC addresses in my network
Posted on 2014-12-08
I configured my wireless router to only allow devices by MAC addresses. As a result, I see this warning:
"Wi-Fi Protected Setup cannot be used with WEP or WPA wireless security mode or MAC Filtering. To use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, change your wireless security mode and/or disable MAC filtering"
is this technique safe? or should I use WAP2?
also, when filtering MAC addresses to allow wireless access, I am unable to access my devices via the network. When I use WAP2, I am able to (hosts files and apache server confg ok). Any ideas why this is?
In advance, thank you for your help....
