    Hello.
    I have an iPhone 5s with the last version of iOS. I enabled the MAC Address filtering in my Modem but sometimes my iPhone can't connect to the modem. other Cell phones working properly but my iPhone can't :(. Any idea to solve it?

    Thank you.

    Turn off MAC filtering, it has no security benefit as MACs can be so easily spoofed and it also stops your iOS devices from running wifi scans in sleep mode (see here)
