How do I configure MAC filtering on my DIR/WBR series router?

The MAC (Media Access Controller) Address filter option is used to control network access based on the MAC Address of the network adapter. A MAC address is a unique ID assigned by the manufacturer of the network adapter. This feature can be configured to ALLOW or DENY network/Internet access.

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the DIR/WBR series into the address bar (default is192.168.0.1). Press Enter.

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Advanced tab along the top and then on Network Filter on the left-hand side.


Step 4: From the Configure MAC Filtering drop down selection select your method of MAC filtering.

  • Turn MAC Filtering OFF
  • MAC Filtering ON and ALLOW computers listed to access the network.
  • MAC Filtering ON and DENY computers listed to access the network

Step 5: Select your computer from the DHCP Client List drop-down or you can enter your computer´s MAC address manually.

Step 6: Click Save Settings to save your settings.
