Today I deployed a WAP121 and wanted to set-up the MAC-Filter. So I went into the configuration (Wireless > MAC Filtering), selected
"Allow only stations in list" and added the MAC adresses of the two devices I want to allow to the network. Then I saved the settings.
Just to test if it works I tried o connect to the network with another device. What happened? It could connect without any problems and access the network and the internet via the WAP121.
So I tought that maybe I have to reboot the WAP121 in order to have the settings take any effect. It didn't help. After the reboot, the MAC Filtering settings were still there but they still had no effect. The device that wasn't in the list still could connect to the network without any problems.
Verify whether the MAC filter is chosen as Local on the page Wireless> Networks. If it is not chosen as local the MAC address that you configured on the page Wireless>MAC Filetering will not be used to allow/block MAC addresses.
