.

since it takes aim at routers (with SSH or telnet open on the WAN end)
I thought most routers have SSH/Telnet disabled on the WAN side by default?

Would the use of Mac Address filtering stop WAN telnet attempts?

No. at best MAC filtering reminds/doesn't allow people to "accidentally" connect to the wrong (your) AP, MAC's are easily spoofed, by anyone wanting to get in.
security is a combonation of settings, each one making it more difficult/less worth spending time on, for most "hackers".
