Mac address filtering on Linksys WRT54G

    I'd like to enable Mac filtering on my linksys WRT54G router. I'm a little
    hazy on which devices need to be set up. Do I just set up the wireless
    devices in Mac filtering or do I add the wired devices, too?

    Also, Is there a quick way to see the Mac address of each computer's Mac
    address?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    Carumba! I shouldn't be allowed to type before finishing my morning coffee.

    The second question should read...

    device?

  3. AFAIK only the wireless devices are filtered.
    (In a command prompt/DOS box) ipconfig/all and look at physical
    address

    sorry to correct you... that should be ipconfig /all on win2k and xp (note
    the space).

    in win95/98/me, type winipcfg.

    linux, type ifconfig -a

    hth.

  6. The routeur provides you with MAC adresses of connected elements... You
    just have then to authorize them.

  7. Sorry to correct you back, but neither my XP nor my 2K machines
    require the space.
