MAC Filtering on Multiple Access Points

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?QmlsbFM=?=, Feb 3, 2006.

  1. I have six (6) AP’s on my network all set up using MAC filtering to only
    allow specific MAC address access to each device. All devices have the same
    list of MAC address and I was wondering if I needed to include each AP’s MAC
    address in each of the AP’s list?

    In addition, all AP’s use the same channel (11). By using the same channel,
    does that help if a device is moving around the building, can it “hop†from
    one AP to the other in a seamless manner?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    You don't normally need to enter the WAP's MAC addresses into each other.
    For wireless roaming the WAPs should use the same SSID and different
    channels. You should stagger the 3 discreet channels (1,6, and 11) so each
    pair on the same channel is most distant from each other.
