Mac address filtering on Linksys WRT54G

I'd like to enable Mac filtering on my linksys WRT54G router. I'm a little hazy on which devices need to be set up. Do I just set up the wireless devices in Mac filtering or do I add the wired devices, too?

Also, Is there a quick way to see the Mac address of each computer's Mac address?

Thanks, Jon

Carumba! I shouldn't be allowed to type before finishing my morning coffee.

The second question should read... Also, Is there a quick way to see the Mac address of each computer's network device?

sorry to correct you... that should be ipconfig /all on win2k and xp (note the space).

in win95/98/me, type winipcfg.

linux, type ifconfig -a

AFAIK only the wireless devices are filtered.

(In a command prompt/DOS box) ipconfig/all and look at physical address

Or install this utility to get winipcfg capability in XP:

The routeur provides you with MAC adresses of connected elements... You just have then to authorize them.

Sorry to correct you back, but neither my XP nor my 2K machines require the space.
