It’s very common for networks to implement MAC Address filtering as a Network Access Control, despite it being an awful method to prevent unauthorised access. In this video, I show you how easy it is to bypass MAC Address Filtering and why network administrators need to use a better method, such as 802.1x authentication.

    Thank you for mentioning the mitigation strategy of implementing 802.1x, often we are taught how to do something but not how to mitigate the threat

    So my dad blocked me from the internet completely but I don’t have a PC and Im trying to connect my Xbox to internet. Will it work if I just change the alternate Mac address to another devices Mac address that’s unfiltered? Please help
