I want to:

Deny or allow specific wireless client devices to access my network by their MAC addresses.

For example, you want the wireless client A with the MAC address 00:0A:EB:B0:00:0B and the wireless client B with the MAC address 00:0A:EB:00:07:5F to access the router, but other wireless clients cannot access the router.

How can I do that?

1. Visit, and log in with the username and password you set for the router.

2. Go to Wireless 2.4GHz/5GHz > Wireless MAC Filtering.

3. Click Enable to enable the Wireless MAC Filtering function.

4. Select Allow the stations specified by any enabled entries in the list to access as the filtering rule.

5. Delete or disable all entries if there are any entries already.

6. Click Add New and fill in the blanks.

1) Enter the MAC address 00:0A:EB:B0:00:0B in the MAC Address field.

2) Enter Client A in the Description field.

3) Leave the status as Enabled.

4) Click Save and click Back.

Click Add New again to add Client B.

7. The configured filtering rules should be listed as the picture shows below.

Now only client A and client B can access your network.
