Activating 4S With Airport Express/Extreme & MAC Address Filter

If you’re trying to add your 4S to the Airport Express or Extreme and have MAC address filters, the easiest way to do it is this:

  1. Go to your access restriction and change the default to allow access
  2. Connect your 4S to the network
  3. Open the Airport Utility, go to Advanced and click “Logs and Statistics”
  4. Click the Wireless Clients tab
  5. Look for the new device that uses type 802.11b/g/n and copy the MAC address from the Client field
  6. Add it to your access restriction
  7. Change the default back to “no access”

That’s it!
