Hi Binish Joshi,

I do employ Mac filtering using my router as a DHCP server and assigning a specific IP address to a known Mac Number. I also limit the number of IP address that can be served to the number of PCs with specific Mac number to be served.

In my configuration any PC other than those assigned a specific IP address based on their MAC would not be able to connect to my network even if they know my password since no IP address will be available to it.

I really do not know what you mean by " I blocked my own Mac filtering" and how you do it. Perhaps you are employing only mac number filtering without address reservation to specific Mac..

In such a case you can change the Mac Number of your PC to get out of the Mac filtering.

Use the Technitium MAC Address Changer.

While it can remember the original Mac that was changed and revert to it, I would advise you to note the original Mac Number.
How can I delete/reset MAC of network adapter?

:).Hmmm....... I flew from Pokharo to Jomsom and trekked all the way to Muktinath."It is quite difficult to travel because of tough weather conditions. Only those who are willing to undergo physical discomfort and rigor can go to Muktinath. Above all, one should have the Grace of the Lord to visit Muktinath. The convenient routes to Muktinath from Pokhara to Jomsom by flight. By Flight: Pokhara to Jomsom by air in about 30 minutes.By treks: Walk to Kagbeni to Jharkot to Muktinath in about 7-8 hours"

Young man, do it now and take a shower under the 108 holy Taps to absolve yourself of all sins calling me old man.

WLM Filtering
I've noticed that filters I create using the "Where the From line contains" criterion don't always work. Will it work only if what appears in the "Received: from" line in the source code is specified? Or is it supposed to work if the displayed "From" line of the message is specified?
