myWIFIzone has the maximum authentication method configured when it is installed (both MAC address and IP authentication). To change the authentication method, select the method you want to use and click the Apply button on the set-up page.

IP Address means the Internet Protocol address of the computer must be on the IP whitelist to allow access
MAC Address uses the Machine address of the computer must be on the IP whitelist to allow access
Both means that both the IP and MAC address of the computer must be on their repective whitelists to allow access

Editing the Whitelists

TIP: The simplest way to permit access to another computer is to allow myWIFIzone to block it, and then click the "Permit access to this Computer" link on the notification window.
