This function exploits the uniqueness of the MAC (Medium Access Control) address, a unique 12-digit hexadecimal address (for example, D8:5D:4C:B4:46:EA) of every network device, to determine if the device can or cannot access your wireless network.

I want to:

Prevent unauthorized users from accessing my wireless network by utilizing the network device’s MAC address.

For example, I have a computer that is connected to my wireless network. Now, an unknown device (an intruder) is also using my wireless network, which affects my internet speed. I would like to control my wireless network with the following capabilities:

• My computer is always allowed to access the wireless network.

• The unknown device is not allowed to access the wireless network.

• I don’t have to keep changing my wireless password as often.

How can I do that?

1. Please refer to How to log into the web-based management interface of Archer MR200? (new logo)

2. Go to Advanced > Wireless > MAC Filtering and enable Wireless MAC Filtering.
