I have a home 802.11N + ethernet router (D-link DIR-655) with MAC filtering enabled. I am trying to connect a switch to one of the ports (D-Link DGS-2208) and connect two devices to that switch.
Both devices work correctly when connected directly to the router, but don't work when the switch is in the middle. My understanding is that this should work, what am I missing? Is there a MAC address for the switch itself that I need to add to the MAC address whitelist on the router? If so, how do I find it (it's not printed on the device anywhere I can find it). Also, if that is the case, will whitelisting that MAC address allow anything connected to the switch to access the network?
