    If I am using only MAC address filtering as wifi security and I have one router and several wireless access points would I need to enter the MAC address in all the AP's or just the router?

    The router is the one with the main security enforcement so that would be the one to do it in. The AP's are basically pass-through as far as the Router is concerned with the MAC address's I think.

    Since I posted this I have been testing and found that each device works independently. I can use MAC filtering on the router's wireless access and WPA2 on the other AP's. Only the PC's that use the router as access need to have the MAC address listed while other PC's that use AP's attached to the router can use WPA2.
