MAC Filtering on Xfinity XB8 is not working
I'm trying to use the MAC Filter Setting on my wifi network configuration admin options here: http://10.0.0.1/wireless_network_configuration.jst. I update my MAC Filter Setting to allow only specific devices to connect by setting MAC Filtering Mode to "Allow" and added devices to the Wif-Fi Control List for my SSID. I saved the settings and rebooted the gateway. The settings are all there and seem to be correct, but they have no impact. Any device with the password is still allowed through to connect. I did some troubleshooting - forgetting the network and then re-adding it with a device that is not white listed. It connected with not problem, so the MAC filtering doesn't seem to be working. I talked to some Xfinity technical support agents about the issue, but they couldn't help me.
