  2. Launch a web browser and in the address bar, enter 192.168.1.1, then click the arrow icon or press Enter.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Enter the required username and password, then click Log In.
    Note: The default username and password is admin.
  5. Click the WLAN dropdown.
  6. Click WLAN MAC Filter.
  7. Click the WLAN MAC Filter dropdown.
  8. Select the desired filter mode (e.g. Allow).
  9. Click on an empty MAC Address field.
  10. Enter the MAC address of the device you want to add.
  11. To remove a device from the MAC filtering list, delete the required address from the MAC Address field.
