AT&T Internet Modem/ Gateway 5268AC & MAC Filtering - An Update from the AT&T Community

Learn about the latest change to the Pace 5268AC


If you have noticed MAC Filtering is no longer working on the Pace 5268AC, this is by design. 


What is the deal?

MAC Filtering was not playing nice with Wi-Fi Extenders so the feature was disabled to ensure functionality. If you are concerned about it affecting the latest AT&T Internet modems, not to worry, the change is not. 


Have a 5268AC and want to use MAC Filtering? 

You can reach out to our teams and we can work on sending you one of the latest modems/ Gateway that support MAC Filtering.
