WIFI Filtering

Hello,

can anyone explain the difference between MAC Filtering under the Advanced Settings/Wireless/Security and Advanced Settings/Security?

Assuming the first only refer to wireless, why is it then not possible to configure the time slots there but only under  Advanced Settings/Security?
I want to setup wifi mac filtering for specific times and devices. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

Cristiano

From bitter personal experience and from related posts I recommend avoiding Hub MAC filtering like the plague. 

I'm not a Very Insightful Person (just a little bit, sometimes). I don't work for Virgin Media (but then nor do any of the offshore customer service agents).

I have not used these controls so cannot comment on their use beyond that documented.

The former is specifically to control connection to Hub's Wi-Fi via device's MAC Address and the latter internet access for all connected devices.. Be aware that controlling access via MAC Address is easily bypassed by setting device to use a randomly generated one or, where supported, assign a specific one.
