Re: Bell 2701 HG NO Router Mac Filtering (Wirelessly)

I guess I missed that part in school...

I going too visit my school and try to do that, because we have tried this with WireShark with a CISCO router (Wireless) and it was unable to get in. I will have to take your word for it...

BELL should stick to just modems and let the user use there own router, or fix the problem.

Why?

As I said MAC Address Filtering only prevents people from connecting by accident.

And once you are using wireless encryption, you are wasting your time doing that.

Why is that?

The users can disable wireless in the modem combo and they can put their modem into bridge mode and use their own router.
