Set up MAC Filtering

As an added security feature, you may like to enable the MAC filter on your Bright Box router. This means that only computers or devices with a MAC address that you approve can use your internet connection.

To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Bright Box router's admin pages and navigate to the Firewall menu 
  2. Select MAC Filter

  3. Select to Enable MAC Address Control

  4. Enter the MAC address(s) of the computer(s) or device(s) you wish to allow access to
  5. The easiest way to do this is to scroll to the bottom of the MAC filter page, locate your device in the DHCP client list, and select Copy To - this will automatically insert your MAC address into the chosen field

  6. Alternatively, you can type the MAC address of the computer or device that you wish to allow access into the MAC address field
  7. Once you've entered all the required MAC addresses select SAVE SETTINGS

  8. The changes you've made to your firewall will be saved

Note: If you experience problems connecting to your router after changing settings, you may need to reset your router to factory default settings.
