This is a complete MAC Filter setup guide for Streamyx user. You’ll need to configure the router MAC Restrict mode and then you can filter any MAC address by allowing or denying their access to your Wifi network.
Generally, MAC (Media Access Control) address consist of 6 groups of hexadecimal digits separated either by colons (:) or hyphens (-). It is a unique identifier assigned to every device by the manufacturer for identification.
In other words, each device will have a different MAC address.
With this unique identification, you can configure your TM Streamyx router and decide which MAC address to have the permission to establish the connection to the network and which are don’t.
Note: I’m using the default modem provided by TM which is Innacomm W3400V6 modem.
