NOTE: It is recommended that you set up these Wi-Fi security settings from a computer that is wired to the router.
WPA™ / WPA2™
MAC Address Filtering
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). It can be a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits or a 128-bit key with 26 hexadecimal digits.

WPA™ / WPA2™
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) or Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) is the updated and more reliable security standard. It improves the security features of WEP.

The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a series of 12 hexadecimal characters that serves as an identifier for a computer or device. With this, you can also secure your Wi-Fi by limiting access via MAC Address Filtering. This feature gives you the option to either allow or deny specific MAC addresses from connecting to your Wi-Fi router.

NOTE: MAC Address Filtering can be used with both WEP and WPA / WPA2 encryption.
