I have a access to a large WLAN network (in a hostel); where lot of students have access to wifi password. So, to prevent sharing this password to others I used MAC address white-list filtering. At first everyone share their MAC addresses to me to feed in that filter, which was a heavy and boring work. One day while modifying a user's MAC address I accidently disable all MAC address by clicking on a button. I don't know why manufacturers develop this option; because it also disable my MAC address. Now no one have access to router while knowing password.

So, my device have all MAC address in blacklist mode, and I don't wanna do this hectic work to add these addresses again. So, how could I bypass this filter.

  • Yes I thought about this. But I haven't have one yet. I can manage it tomorrow, but there should be some way of wireless hack. I am just interested that how could it work. – umair mughal Sep 8 '18 at 21:46

    You want to bypass this filter for just your machine, though. There are lots of ways of recovering, like resetting the device. – schroeder Sep 8 '18 at 23:04

There are couple of things you can do;

1- Change your mac address and connect.

2- Get a device which is not blocked from the network and connect.

3- Reset your router with a needle.

4- Try plugging an ethernet cable and you might be able to connect.
