WN2000RPT and MAC filtering address

I have a WN2000RPT working like as range extender, working with my router, which has enabled mac address filtering.

The pc `s connected to WN2000RPT, have wifi access, although their mac address are not on the list.

That is, MAC filtering only works when the computer it's connected directly to the main router.

Is not possible to filter the mac adress through the WN2000RPT?

Thanks in advance.

Using extender, all the devices are under extender's Mac address I believe ..

Thanks for the help.

That is what it seems, but it's unsafe for the wireless network.......

Mac filter should be counted for security. Easily spoof so strong encryption would sufficient such as wpa2
