2. Enter your PLDT DSL router’s username and password or you may try the default credentials below:

Username: admin
Password: 1234

3. Copy the “MAC Address” of the device you want to block. Mac address is a unique identifier or ID of each device currently connected with your router. MAC address is hard coded for each device so it cannot be changed compared to IP Address.

Note: If you’re not sure which MAC address for a specific device, here’s how to get your device’s MAC Address:

For IOS – Go to Settings>General>About, then look for “Wi-Fi Address“.

For Android – Go to Settings>About>Status>, then look for “Wi-Fi MAC address“.

For Windows – In windows PC, open “Command Prompt” app or press Windows + R on your keyboard, then type “cmd” then hit enter.
You’ll see a black screen (command prompt), then type “ipconfig/all” then hit enter. Look for “Physical Address“.how-can-i-block-user-on-pldt-router

4. Click on “Firewall” from main menu, then “MAC Filter“. Look for “Source MAC” box, then paste the MAC Address you want to block without the : characters. For example: c4e086710502

Hit the “Add” button to block the MAC Address of the device.

Note: The blocked device can still connect with your Wi-Fi but cannot access or browse the internet. You can just change your Wi-Fi password to prevent that device accessing your Wi-Fi.

For PLDT Fibr Router:

This MAC filtering is applicable only with software version RP2616.
