I have a linksys router EA4500 with wi-fi dual band. I restrict the wi-fi access to MAC address only. (That is, only certain MAC address can access my wi-fi and no password needed). Now I have a netgear Nighthawk range extender model EX7000 AC1900 dual band. I want this range extender to work with my linksys MAC setup. I input the netgear mac address into linksys access. It seems to work on a wired configuration. I want it to work on a wireless wi-fi configuration but can't get it to work. Any way I can get this to work ? Any other system or brand I can use with my MAC restriction ?
