Tomato firmware gives you the ability to setup a MAC filter. A MAC filter allows you to setup a rule that either allows or denies access to your network based on the MAC address of that device. It’s not at the top of the list for home network security. Nor is it entirely bulletproof. But a MAC filter does provide a little more control over your home network.
Home network security isn’t something you should take lightly. And with Tomato, securing your WiFi only takes a moment. But with various WiFi security types, which one is the best one for your home network? Furthermore, if you choose a specific security type, will your computers hardware be compatible? If not, you won’t be able to connect.
Home network security isn’t just about securing your computers. Sometimes, you need a little security for those living/working under your roof –like children, or employees that waste time on Facebook. With Tomato, you can block ads, block websites, setup a porn filter, and take control of what goes on inside of your home network.
