MAC Address Query

  Colonelkaye 14:04 25 Feb 2005

Hi all,
I have 3 PC's all accessing the internet via a Belkin Wireless Router set up with MAC Address filtering.
I have purchased a laptop and wish it to join the network but I cannot find an option on the log in screen via the Belkin setup to add another pc?

I have found the MAC address via a posting on here but how do I add it?

Further more, the IP address on the laptop is not in range with the network. Do I need to manually change it to within the range as I tried that before and it connected but was not showing DHCP assigned and would not surf!!

Or do I simply add the IP address of the wireless card in the laptop?

Please help! The laptop is a birthday pressie for my daughter!!

Forgot to mention all 3 PC's are on XP.

Have checked the router manual which says "tick the box saying assign address automatically".

Have tried that and it comes up "limited connection".
