    Hi, I am new to this site but I could do with some help.
    Does anyone know how to disable mac filtering on a SKY router in order that I can set up my printer for wireless operation and then reset it? I have the original SKY disk but that is the exrent of my knowledge!

    Thanks, raf

    Well the IP address of the router will be either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. You basically need to log onto that with a username of Admin and a password of sky.

    Once in you should be able to find wireless settings and untick "enable mac filtering".

    Save, Reboot, Walla.

    S Walch,

    Many thanks for response, did as suggested but under 'Security' only option active was this: WPA-PSK. No where did I see option to actually disable mac filtering although there was an address for mac filtering. Any more thoughts please?

    It might also be referred to as "Wireless Station Access List".

    Which Sky router do you have btw - the White or the black one?

    Okay.

    Then with the white one, when you log on to it, to the left you should see a lot of options:

    You obviously want Wireless Settings.

    Under that you should see the following:

    Next to Wireless Station Access List you should see a tab that says Setup Access List. Click on that, and it should bring up another page.

    Untick where it says Turn Access Control On, and that should turn off the MAC filtering :)

    This page can also be accessed by putting http://192.168.x.x/setup.cgi?todo=nbtscan&next_file=m_access.htm in your browsers address bar (change the .x.x at the beginning to whatever the numbers are for your router's IP address :))
