My ISP provided ZyXEL C3000Z router. I'm trying to configure MAC filtering -- to permit only whitelisted addresses to connect.
After I added my 6th device (4 laptops -- 2 work issued, 2 personal, and 2 cell phones) I got this error:
Reach Maximum MACFilter Number
I'm amazed at this... in this day of smart appliances (TVs, coffee makers, garage door openers, thermostats, etc.) multiple mobile devices, game consoles, etc., that 6 devices would be a limit.
Does anyone know of an alternative modem/router which is more capable than the one I currently have?
... or any other implementations?
What I am NOT looking for is to turn this into a security-related motherhood discussion. Please don't reply with "MAC filtering isn't secure". I already understand some of that.
Replies targeted to the information in this post are greatly appreciated.
