I currently have an Archer C80 and another router connected to it via the LAN port to extend the range.
This other router is set to wired repeater mode and doesn't have its own mac filter settings.
In the C80, I have the Access Control set to whitelist mode to increase my network security (Which should also filter out wired connections).
I have also added the other routers Mac Address to the C80's whitelist.
The problem is when I test the Mac filter by removing my phone's Mac address from the whitelist, I can still connect to the network from the other router's wifi. (Both routers share the same wifi name)
I expected the C80 to refuse the connection since it has a DHCP server and the other router doesn't but the only thing that happens is I can not access the internet from the phone while connected to through the other router. I can still access internal devices such as printers and computers (even ones connected to C80 directly) which isn't very secure.
Is there a setting I can change in the Archer C80 or do I need to fiddle with the other router to also have a mac filter?
