Access Point - MAC Address Filtering


I have two devices and I'd like to know how many devices we can apply MAC address filtering on.
NETGEAR Wireless Access Point WG103

Where I can get this info from?

Can you recommend something with more than 16 address allowed?

Thank you.

I'm not finding a hard limitation on the number of devices you can add to the MAC filter on either of the devices you've listed. Off the top of my head, though, I don't know many routers (including even the very cheap ones) that has a filtering table smaller than I believe 32 MAC addresses. Not to say they don't exist, but in the case of your AP and Router I'm not seeing anything (in their technical documentation) that lists a limitation of 16 or less.

We need to replace TP-LINK TL-WA701ND that allows only 16 MAC addresses.

Have you attempted a firmware update on the TP-LINK? This could increase the number of allowed addresses.

Solved. I tested NETGEAR Wireless Access Point WG103 and it allows more than 32 MAC address entries.
