Belkin Wireless Network

  Colonelkaye 19:55 25 Feb 2005

Hi All,
I have a wireless network on 3 PC's via a Belkin Wireless Router (F5D7630) which works fine. I have MAC address filtering set up which was done via Belkin direct.
I have purchased a laptop and want to add it to my network but I cannot find a way of getting the MAC address onto the router setup page and also the IP address of the laptop is not in the range of the network.
Do I have to manually change the TCP/IP settings which I have tried already and the auto DHCP stops as a result. It connects to the network but the router is stopping it surfing.
Furthermore, the MAC address produced according to the Belkin setup page has an incorrect digit. Is there a set pattern to mac adresses?

This laptop is a pressie next week so any help would be appreciated

Am going to have another go but forot to mention all PC's are running Windows XP.

To find the MAC address of laptop open a command window type ipconfig /all

The MAC will be shown as a physical address.
