    *****Warning: Initially I entered the MAC address from my phone(see above webpage), then selected “ALLOW”—**THIS SCREWED UP MY ROUTER CONNECTION WITH MY LAPTOP, PHONE, ETC. I spent 1 hr with Belkin customer service who helped me get it straighted out.

    I then checked my phone and NOW MY DROID X IS CONNECTED WIFI TO MY LAPTOP. I went back to the router settings(see above) and the one thing I noticed DIFFERENT was that under “MAC address control”, my mac address was now there(because I put it in earlier) but DISABLED was now selected. (I’d made that change with the cust. Serv. Rep from belkin).

    **I BELIEVE THAT WAS THE CRITICAL CHANGE WHICH IS NOW ALLOWING MY DROID TO BE ON THE SAME WIFI AS MY COMPUTER.

    My non-professional opinion. I hope this helps someone……….. Kent

    I found the location of the MAC address on my Droid, but underneath it says “Unavailable.”
    Like HS (Post #2) above, I want to enter it into my router security settings.
