TP Link Repeater (WA860RE V5.1) & Vodafone Router (Easybox 804) Mac Filter Issue
setting up the TL-WA860RE Repeater with my Easybox 804 Router worked without any trouble, using app or web interface.
but i can't get it working when i activate the mac filter mode on the router, > which is a feature i really don't want to miss.
usually when i have a new gadget, i disable mac filtering, connect it to wifi, add it to the mac list by clicking on a button, then i activate mac filtering again and it works.
in this case it did not happen. it adds a mac adress that is almost similar to the one that is printed on the back of the repeater but both of them don't work.
when l log into the web interface, there's a third version of the mac adress, which also don't work when added to the list.
here's an example with the partially blackened true mac adress:
backprint mac adress
50 - XX - XX - XX - XX - 52
actual mac adress (added from router)
52 - XX - XX - XX - XX - 52
tp link mac adress (from tp-link web interface)
50 - XX - XX - XX - XX - 53
there's no connection from the TP-Link Repeater to the router and internet when mac filter on the router is ON.
both works when mac filter is OFF.
i allready tried these 16 combinations without success
50 / 50 51 / 50 52 / 50 53 / 50
50 / 51 51 / 51 52 / 51 53 / 51
50 / 52 51 / 52 52 / 52 53 / 52
50 / 53 51 / 53 52 / 53 53 / 53
how can that be?
