The Wireless Access Point filters MAC addresses
MAC filtering is a security feature in which a
Wireless Access Point (WAP)
configured with a list of
(also called hardware addresses) of devices
that are allowed to gain access to the network through the WAP.
If the WAP does not have the hardware address of a device attempting to access
the network, the WAP denies the device access to the network.
If the WAP filters MAC addresses, then the printer's MAC address must be added
to the WAP's list of accepted MAC addresses.
1. Print an
HP Report page
2. Find the printer's hardware address on the HP Report page.
3. Open the WAP's configuration utility, then add the printer's hardware address
to the list of accepted MAC addresses.
