Solved Using Mac filtering in my DIGISOL router to secure WiFi

July 8, 2016 at 12:36:06
Specs: Linux
My neighbours been using my WiFi for a while. I thought I'll just cut him off by using Mac filtering but when I went for the settings there were two options outgoing and incoming and two for Mac address too source and destination. Now I'm completely confused to put what and where.
I use a digisol router. DG-BG4100NU

All you have to do is change the wifi access/secirity-key (frequently incorrectly referred to as the password).

Change to something "you" can remember; and perhaps email it to yourself (and save the email in a saves folder). Also perhaps stick a note on the base of your router - highly unlikely your neighbour is going to be to see it?

Perhaps use part of your Soc Security number and some other characters?

Also even change the SSID for your router; again making a note of it as above.

Changing the access-key and even the SSID will restrict who can use the router via wifi; mac filtering adding another level of control, which whilst it is it true will restrict access too, does mean more work. The access-key change at least would do what required; and changing the SSID an extra barrier, with mnmal effort.

Having both mac filtering, and changing the default access-key and SSID will of course really tighten/control access.
