• iPhone, Wi-Fi, and MAC Address Filtering

    Bet that title drove everyone away. But this is really pretty simple. I use media access card (MAC) address filtering on my home Wi-Fi network (Talked about it here.) And now I have a shiny new iPhone and I want to use WI-Fi for?it (especially for Skype international calls, of course.) Only problem – couldn’t find the MAC address.

It’s called “Wi-Fi address.” And there I was looking at all sorts of network-related things. Silly me. No matter. I opened up the router’s admin software, added the address, and boom! in business. Easy. Now if only Gmail support was push-oriented…

      Thanks – glad it was useful I have since enabaled a Playstation connected to my TV – which made Netflix streaming possible. Easy, and the Sony doc made it easy to find the AC address.
