Re: BGW210 WPS disabling

I found it.

They spelled it out as I was looking for "wps". Its right below the "confirm password" box in "Home Network" > "Wi-Fi" Smiley Embarassed

Re: BGW210 WPS disabling

well ---- that's not really the full solution according to the error message I'm getting.

I'm looking how to disable WPS on a specific MAC address because of the below error "suggestion"

 
I went to black list a MAC address but get this error when I press SAVE:
 
             You must disable WPS on an SSID in order to use MAC address filtering on that SSID
 
How do I do that ??
If you were successful in filtering out specific MAC address can you send me steps / screen-shots please?
 
Thanks, Jim

Re: BGW210 WPS disabling

I assume it would be the same way I did it, except I only allow certain mac's to come in and all other mac's can't.

If I remember right, you can do it either way by going to the page in the modem/router I stated above. Disable mac filtering, then click the block button, then put the mac in, then hit save.

But I think you have to leave wps disabled afterwards.

 

In the meantime I will try to find my password again and take a lookSmiley Embarassed

My son - a real wiz kid proposes a different solution.

 

Navigate to FIREWALL then PACKET FILTER

Scroll to the bottom and select ADD A DROP RULE

Then ADD MATCH and enter the MAC address.

 

You've successfully blocked MAC addresses from your Wi-Fi router.

Go to Home Network tab > Wifi Tab > Click "Advanced Options" > then look for "Wi-Fi Protected Setup," set dropdown box to "off" > Save Changes.
