Cannot connect from wired authorized computer

As per title although I have manually added the (100% correct) MAC address of my wired computer into the Access Control allowed list there is no way I can access my R7000.

I am running the latest firmware and I need please to sort this out. 😞

Does the MAC match the MAC in the attached devices? Turn off access control. Contact support.

I don't have R7000 front of me but I think Mac filter is only for wireless device only unless R7000 has implemented both mac filter for wireless and wired.

Attached Devices doesn't show it up and I forgot to mention that even by disabling Access Control I can't connect from the PC. :mad:
Btw the R7000 is wire connected by the Internet port only (correct?).

Both are accepted by the MAC filter and this was possible since along ago (see my previous WPN824). 🙂

Are you referring to address reservation under LAN setup

It actually says the word 'wireless' only, but trust me if I say that I had to put the wired computer MAC address too to be able to access that router. 😉

And no I am not referring to that.

The r7000 has a MAC filter which covers all connections and should be avoided if you experience a problem. So default holding the reset until power led flashes. Then re-enter configs and leave the Mac filtering alone and contact support.

Considering that I wanted to backup and flash King's firmware that's a sad option left after spending a whole morning at setting up my R7000... 😞

Thanks anyway everybody.

I couldn't remember on AC router but I guess does both wired and wireless now.

Although I don't think WPN824 ever did both
